This chapter discusses Watterson's many political goals that were focused on a single vision of attaining southern prosperity and independence through free trade. Some of these goals were reforming and healing the national and state Democratic Party organizations after the silverite fiasco and reaffirming tariff reform as the primary focus of the party. It also looks at his life after the Courier-Journal collapsed and Watterson launched in a stronger and angrier tirade against all of his enemies.

Keywords:   Watterson, political goals, southern prosperity, independence, free trade, Democratic Party organizations, silverite fiasco, Courier-Journal
