Book Description:

In the critical 1860 election, Tennessee slave owner John Bell stood for a newly formed third party, the Constitutional Unionists. Concerned about the future of the Union, he took a moderate position he hoped would tamp down sectional passions. Bell won 40 percent of the vote in the South, belying the belief that all Southerners favored an immediate rush into secession—and demonstrating that third parties have valuable lessons to teach about American history.

About the Author:

Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 185 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 1.0in.Third parties have been a fixture in the American political landscape since the beginning of the two-party system. More than 300 of these groups have surfaced, but only a handful have made a real difference. Third-Party Matters: Politics, Presidents, and Third Parties in American History tells the intriguing stories of those 11 parties, starting with the antislavery Liberty Party of 1840. The parties deemed worthy of inclusion were selected because they met at least one of three criteria. They were spoilers who changed the outcome of an election, they had an important influence on government policy or the future of politics, andor they had popular appeal, attracting at least ten percent of the vote. This investigation reveals the background behind each partys rise, what it stood for, who its leaders wereincluding larger-than-life personalities like Teddy Roosevelt, George Wallace, and Ross Perotand the ultimate outcome of the election(s) in which the party participated. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780313365911
