19.4 Farming and Populism
How did the Populist Party formed?
What did the farmers want and why?
My friends and I were all tired of having no political power.
We had many discussions on what to do about this. Eventually this turned into so many arguments.
Later on, we had to pay back banks loans with money that was worth more than the original money we had borrowed.
We decided to make a movement that let us farmers and laborers have a greater voice. That is when the Populist Party formed (1892).
All we wanted to gain from all of this is a policy that would raise our crop prices. We eventually gained some of the money we had lost.
Things turned out good for us farmers later though. Thanks for stopping by.
