A very interesting article about the rise and fall of the Know Nothing Party in the 19th century and its lessons for the modern Republican Party. #TheMoreYouKnow #HistoricalContext

That-Bookish-Hiker Very interesting! I first heard about them after watching Dickinson on Apple+ which follows Emily Dickinsons life loosely and her father is running for senate and he mentions them. At first I thought it was made up but nope. Thanks for sharing! 2y
KathyWheeler The first time I heard about this party, I thought it was a joke, but no. 2y
Lcsmcat Thanks for sharing this. I learned about the Know Nothing Party in high school history, but only as a failed presidential bid. I didn‘t know that they had gotten people into state legislatures or the House. 2y
