Eisenhower and the Koshares
The Koshares' history with Eisenhower can be traced back to August of 1952 when the Koshares wrote Eisenhower for some campaign buttons. Eisenhower sent a letter in which he stated, "I've heard about the fine work of the Koshare Indian Troop and am pleased that they have asked for these buttons."
