Why was Harrison's log cabin campaign?

The incumbent President, Martin Van Buren, was in trouble due to the economic slump which followed the Panic of 1837. Van Buren, although the protege of Andrew Jackson, did not have much in common with Jackson. Harrison, on the other hand , was a war hero from his successes in the War of 1812 and in Indian Wars. He had lived in frontier Indiana and the campaign denoted him as a "man of the people" like Jackson. (In actuality Harrison was from an old aristocratic family in Virginia and grew up in mansion but he looked a lot more like Jackson that did the short, rather fat Van Buren,)

General Dwight D. Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander during World War II. This is the common title given to the two Supreme Allied Commanders during World War II. He was not the Supreme Allied Commander for the U.S., per se; hence, the title 'Allied'. Eisenhower's official title actually was Supreme Commander Allied Expeditionary Force (SCAEF), and it was for the forces in northwest Europe. The Second Supreme Allied Commander was for Southeast Asian, and it was called the Supreme Allied Commander South East Asia Command (SACSEA).
