Abstract:
Part two of a three part article examining the early life and political career of Populist leader Marion Butler up to his election to the US Senate in 1895. Particular attention is given to differences between Butler and Georgia Populist, Tom Watson, who was in Butler's service to the Farmer's Alliance, his persistence as a Democrat, and his beliefs in fusionism. Butler's life has been seen influential not only because he was president of the Alliance and a senator, but because his life demonstrates the path to political reform taken by thousands of farmers during the 1880s.
