I Like Ike, i.e. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States of America, was born on October 14, 1890 in Denison, Texas, but was brought up in Abilene, Kansas.

Abilene played a very important role in the life of Dwight D. Eisenhower and continues to do so this very day as the home of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.

Incidentally, Dwight Eisenhower  went by the nickname of “Ike” and the phrase “I like Ike” became the 1952 Presidential Campaign slogan for Dwight Eisenhower.
