Henry Watterson and the New South

Daniel S. Margolies

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses the most puzzling political questions during the end of the nineteenth century and how Henry Watterson addressed these. He argued that there was only one way to save the Democratic Party and the South from being swallowed by either the shortsighted radicalism of the Populist left or the paternalistic protectionism of the Republican right. The chapter also looks at Watterson's view regarding silver, which he pinpointed as a paramount danger in 1896.

Keywords:   political questions, nineteenth century, Henry Watterson, Democratic Party, Populist left, Republican right, silver, 1896
