The Fusion Legislatures of 1895-1897: A Roll-Call Analysis of the North Carolina House of Representatives

Record #:
During the 1894 and 1896 North Carolina state elections, Republican and Populist Parties joined in an attempt to gain control of the legislature from the Democratic Party. The merging was not a successful one as the two parties bickered over issues including business regulation, the gold standard, and race relations. They also argued about specific state issues such as local government, patronage, education, taxes, lynching, and railroads.
