The Civil War's Last Campaign is a narrative history of General James B. Weaver's 1880 Presidential campaign as the Greenback-Labor party candidate. In the course of its narrative of the campaign, this study describes a complex coalition with interdependent conservative, radical and pragmatic currents essential to a mass insurgency. This account of his active campaigning offers a new look at America's society, values and politics in the postwar Gilded Age.
