About This Item

n.p.: n.p., n.d.. 1.25 inch brass axe pendant, the emblem of Carry Nation's crusade to abolish the evils of liquor (she would bust up saloons and crack open barrels to spill the wicked brew, in actions that she called "hatchetations"). Supporters of her organization in the early 20th century could purchase these to show their support. A leftover stash was still for sale at the historic Carry Nation home when Jocelyn Cohen of the Helaine Victoria Press visited many years ago in an effort to find old photographs to use for her postcard series, and she bought the remainder, which we in turn have purchased from her. Also included is a period-style postcard tinted in colors of the historic home, as well as a large Helaine Victoria Press postcard on the Whiskey Crusade that includes mention of Nation's campaign. Date of the hatchet unknown; a New York Times report from August 19, 1901 mentions her selling them but presumably there would have been different versions over the course of her career.
