No Booz Log Cabins

I was surprised that you printed a letter in the correspondence column in the February/March 1985 issue with the story about Booz bottles dating from the “log cabin” campaign of 1840.1 thought that the McKearins [Helen and George S., American Glass , 1941] had laid that story to rest many years ago.

There were log-cabin flasks made for that campaign with the slogans “North Bend” and “Tippecanoe” on them, but the Booz bottles, which are in the shape of a small house but not a log cabin, date from the 1860s.
