Political Parties: Plunkitt of Tammany Hall
In honor of the upcoming congressional elections, join us for a series of two free professional development webinars that explores how American political parties transformed from the feared “factions” of the Founding Era to the integral but extra-constitutional political institutions that exist today. In “Plunkitt of Tammany Hall,” our faculty discuss the evolution of the party system in the nineteenth century, the necessity for “honest graft,” and analyze how early parties served as rudimentary municipal governments.
Teaching American History’s Documents in Detail series focuses on a single document from one of our Core Document Collection volumes. TAH’s CDC volumes are available for purchase or free download at tah.org.
