Recently, during travels through the records, I ran across a copy of the Republican Party’s national platform from 1916. It includes sections on:
♦Protection of American Rights
♦Rights of Expatriation
♦Protection of the Country
♦Rural Free Delivery
♦Economy and National Debt
♦Civil Service Reform
On the hunt for the Democratic platform.
