Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to analyze the Populist platform as a reform agenda and ascertain when some of its proposals were later adopted (at the state or national level). Doing so will help you practice skills that are essential to your success in this course and in professional life beyond school, such as chronological reasoning and contextualization. You will also become more knowledgeable about Populism as a reform movement and how reform movements create change.
First, skim the following document for analysis: Peoples Party, Omaha Platform, July 4, 1892, http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/5361/.
Second, find in the document the following elements of the Populist platform, and note their location in the platform (e.g., Transportation):
Graduated income tax
Guarantee of safe deposit of money in banks.
Adoption of secret ballot.
Initiative and referendum.
Limit President to one term
Direct election of Senators to U.S. Congress
Public ownership of railroads, telephone, telegraph.
Third, using an internet search, identify when and where these proposals were adopted in American history. Some were adopted at the national level; some were adopted by some but not all states.
Fourth, using Tiki Toki’s Online Timeline Maker, create a timeline illustrating when and where these proposals were adopted. Include in the timeline
the location of the idea in the Omaha Platform (e.g., Finance, #3; or Expression of Sentiments #4) and
where it was adopted (e.g., 20th Constitutional Amendment; or Wisconsin state government).
Copy the URL or a screenshot (see example below) of your timeline into a Word document, and post the document to the assignment dropbox.
Here’s an example of a timeline of a different period using a different site:
