Cameron Vollmuth Ids for Midterm Populist Platform The Populist Party began with the Texas Farmers Alliance. The Populist Party was founded in 1892, and elected James B Weaver as the presidential candidate. One populist advantage was the man y women in the party. The populists called for nationalization of the railroads and communications; protection of the land from monopoly and foreign ownership; a graduated income tax and the free and unlimited coinage of silver. In 1896 they elected William Jennings Bryan as their presidential candidate and through his “Cross of Gold” speech and said, “you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold”. Samuel Gompers Samuel Gompers was a cigar maker whose family had emigrated to New York in 1863. Gompers became the president of the American Federation of Labor in 1886, when it was formed. The important thing about the AFL and what attracted workers to it, was that it was a labor union for skilled workers only. It provided a different look than the Knight of Labor because they were representing skilled and unskilled. It allowed the skilled workers to come together and make changes to the workplace. Plessy v Ferguson Homer Plessy was a French speaking man who was born in New Orleans and was 1/8 African American.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
