Printed pamphlet for the Populism-Greenback Party, 1884, 3pp. octavo, entitled “People’s Party of Maine” Portland, September 12, 1884, and reads in small part: “...Throug the fault, chiefly, of certain of it’s leaders, the Greenback Party of Maine, has been disorganized and disrupted. Divided into two factions, each of which fritters away its energies in a struggle for supremacy over the other, neither is in a condition to fight a campaign...” Much more. Fine condition. This call to form a “People’s Party of Maine” is a an interesting early use of the name and predates by six years the founding of the national “People’s Party.” This incarnation was an offshoot of the short-lived Anti-Monoploy Party which had nominated Benjamin F. Butler for President in May 1884. The Greenback Party, then in great decline, also nominated Butler altogether with Absolom M. West of the Mississippi. These same political elements would coalesce to form the national populist or “People’s Party” at Cincinnati in 1891.
