Now just a look back at some of my favorite items I have picked up over the last year! Many are Oregon, but some are from other places.
written by H.R. Kincade that discusses some of the work taken up at the convention. He wrote an editorial critical of the Republican Party from back peddling on their commitment to 'bimetallism' they had put in their platform at the RNC in 1896 and then after William McKinley had been elected started to favor the Gold Standard. The Oregon Republicans in 1898 also became in favor of the gold standard. In two years, McKinley would sign the Gold Standard Act. More research to come on this item.
I hope you will consider sharing what your favorite items from 2017 were with us!
