“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and

peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm

branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and

to the Lamb!'”

Problems for Farmers: Read the lesson below and pages and list the three problems farmers faced.

Since the early 1800s, the United States has been a land divided between agriculture and industry. The question is
which will dominate – but the truth is, each is equally needed. As the 2nd Industrial Revolution following the Civil
War has shown, businesses made great strides and changed the face of the US with large, booming cities and huge
corporations and developments. In the meantime, the farmer and his needs were basically ignored.

To counter this, farmers began to organize and unite (similar to the factory workers in the cities). A network (many
connected with the same goals) of organizations was created to address the problems.

The goals of the Grange (organized by Oliver H. Kelley):

● Provide education on new farming techniques (to create better production, more efficient work, etc)
● Regulate (watch over) charges for using the railroads and for storing grain (many businessmen were charging

high rates because the government did not interfere

Victories for Grange:

● Laws that set a maximum rate for shipping on the railroads and for storage.
● Establishment of the ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) – in other words – government watches over

anything that goes across state lines for the purpose of buying and selling – usually requiring the use of

Following the decline of the Grange, Farmer’s Alliances began to form in order to also gain help from one another
and from the US government.

Eventually, all of these alliances together formed the Populist Party, or the People’s Party. In a country that was
only used to having two political parties, the Populist Party – a third political party – would now split the votes
even more and put pressure on the other two parties to get more votes.

The most important thing about a third party is that it brings attention to particular issues – the fact that it has
formed as a party demonstrates that enough people think the issues are important and worth fighting for, and that
the other two parties are not concerned enough.

What did the Populists want?

● Increase in money supply by minting silver as well as gold
● Graduated income tax – the rich pay more and the poor pay less
● Government loans for farmers

● Election of US senators by popular vote
● Eight-hour workday
● Restrictions on immigration (to keep them from taking jobs of those already in the country)
● Government ownership of railroads (so businessmen can’t take advantage of farmers)

During the Presidential election of 1896, a man named William Jennings Bryan ran on the Democratic ticket, but
believed in many of the Populist goals. It looked like the Democrats and Populists might win the election. William
McKinley ran for the Republicans. As much as they hoped, the Democrats/Populists failed to win and the
Republicans took the Presidency. The party lost “popularity” – nice pun, huh?? And soon most of the people from
that party moved over to the Democrats.

BUT, the Populists did gain some victories as we shall see when we get to The Progressives – a group that is all
about reform!
