Fly Paul by 1900 Farmers had spread Over the Northern Plains and the Frontier had been closed. Although we think about die Frontier As a Cowboy and Indian Saga the Farmer was faced with nothing so romantic. Just hard business facts. During the 1870 s product Ion of farm goods increased while the country was in a period of depression. This drove farm prices downward from High civil War Levels. Farmers were convinced As Many Are today that middlemen were the problem. The unorganized Farmer could t Fig fat the railroads Grain elevator operators Bankers and Mer chants and a depression too. When the banker says he s broke Aid the merchants Upin smoke they forget that its the Farmer feeds them All. The Granger movement founded in 1867, recruited hundreds of thousands of Farmer members and captured control of several state governments in the Midwest. Laws were passed regulating middlemen and railroads. But by the 1 ate. The. Rapid expansion of agriculture in the West had caused prices to drop off again. Because the Farmer had invested heavily his debt did not scale had roote to break even. The of 1887 teamed with the depression of the 1890 s to bring ruin. The Farmer then began to shift the blame to currency regulations and organized the Greenback party. They demanded through the Northwest and Southern alliances an inflated currency to wipe out farm debts incurred while prices had been High the Farmer s income would Rise according to theory but his payments on past debts would stay the alliances also suggested a graduated income tax. The Greenback Era faded after the 1884 elections but Alliance leaders and others formed the populist party. The platform called for government ownership of railroads and the free coinage of Silver. Populists hitched their political Wagon to William Jennings the democratic party in 1896 Only to find that free Silver did t excite the voters. The Teddy Roosevelt years following led to increased farm Prosperity and the movements lost political Power. The Long Range influence of these Farmer politicians is still seen. They anticipated Public regulation of railroads and govern ment agencies regulating Public utilities. If Granger s Experiment with cooperatives failed then they set the stage for the Success Ful Coop of today. Although populism never created a major party almost All the reforms they advocated have been applied in this if anybody should ask you who was it made this song Tell him it was poor Farmer marching a million Strong from his wry s scrapbook dates and events from yesteryear a world peace Jubilee was held in Boston june 17, 1872.
