“In some states the farmers chose to work through the existing political parties.  This was especially true in the South, where the Democratic Party wasn’t merely a political organization, but also a continuing instrument of white solidarity against the North and against blacks.” From H. W. Brand’s The Reckless Decade, America in the 1890s, Copyright © 1995 by H. W. Brands, University of Chicago Press edition 2002, Page 185.
