Parading Around: Chuck Hagel Campaign Parades and Events

This exhibit offers a glimpse into life on the campaign trail in Nebraska in 1996 and 2002. When Hagel ran for U.S. Senate in 1996 he was virtually unknown to most Nebraskans. Hagel needed to reach out to communities across the state to win the election. He won in 1996 and maintained his seat in 2002. These photos highlight the many events, parades, and other local activities that Hagel and his family, campaign staff, and volunteers participated in across Nebraska to garner support for his two runs for public office.

These photographs are a sample of the images in the the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives. Discover this material by searching our Archives & Special Collections database and visiting us in Criss Library.


This online exhibit was curated by Hagel Fellow Darby Reiners, 2015.
