The button has since been past down to generation after generation and because of its significances in history he has been offered $10,000 for the button but said he will not sell it.

Clarksville For Obama, Chairman Terry McMoore asked members to vow to continue to work very hard this election season to not only help to get President Obama re-elected but to get all Democratic candidates re-elected or elected at state, federal, and national positions.

Accomplishing this will go a long way in ensuring that President Obama will have the necessary support team he needs from his democratic base and supporters to get laws passed to help our country and nation.
