Class Notes

The Election of 1892 is one of the least exciting and least talked about elections in American history.  The Democrats ran a lawyer who had a proven track record of reform, welcome back ex-President Grover Cleveland.  The Republicans also ran a lawyer with a proven track record on reform, current President Benjamin Harrison.  Neither one was known for their personalities and it was the exact same election as 1888.  There was one important development in this election, the birth of the Populists Party, but they will not play a major role until the next election.
