Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the activities of Henry Watterson towards the end of the nineteenth century. Following the crisis of the depression years, Watterson willingly transformed his own ideological positions and challenged his party's traditions in a new attempt to achieve these long-standing goals. It is important to note that the market was the centerpiece of Watterson's outlook, and free trade was considered to be solvent for all of his contradictions.

Keywords: Henry Watterson; nineteenth century; depression years; ideological positions; long-standing goals; market; outlook; free trade
