'The Worst Muddle Ever Seen in N.C. Politics': The Farmers' Alliance, the Subtreasury, and Zeb Vance

Record #:
This article looks at North Carolina Governer Zebulon B. Vance's opposition to the Farmers' Alliance planned subtreasury in 1890, which put his Senate seat at risk and caused conflict within North Carolina Democratic Party politics. The Democrats were split on the issue - the farmers favored the subtreasury plan, conservatives opposed it as government intervention.
