Scott, Thomas W.

Black and Tan —  Alliance and Republican party 

The Alliance movement were organizations of farmers’ clubs, most of which had sprung up during the economic bad            times of the late 1870s.        

The alliances conceived of themselves as agents of social and economic reform.

The alliances all agreed that agricultural prices were too low, that transportation costs were too high, and that                     something was radically wrong with the nation’s financial system.

White Alliance leaders, Republicans and leaders of the Colored Farmers Alliance organized the People’s party.
