A continuation of an article on the same topic printed in July 1930, this work becomes more specific about the Farmers' Union membership and engagement of these men. Founded in 1905, activities of the Farmers' Union became important across the state after 1908 through the end of this organization in 1921. During this period membership surpassed 33,000 with members engaged in political, economic, social, and educational activities.
The Farmers' Union, formally known as the Farmers' Educational and Cooperative Union of America, was predated by two other national organizations; the Grange and Farmers' Alliance. Though this organization never met memberships as large as the other two, it had its largest membership in North Carolina after its introduction to the state in 1905. This organization focused on improved education and legislation to benefit the state's farmers.
