The Farmers' Alliance in North Carolina

Record #:
North Carolina farmers in the late 19th century had to overcome potential obstacles to their success including the credit system, the tariff system, price-controlling trusts, the railroads, and the American financial system. In response, agricultural organizations formed in 1887 inspired by Col. L.L. Polk's weekly paper, \"The Progressive Farmer.\" The largest organization was the Farmer's State Alliance of North Carolina.
