Political Convention -1900


As the nation moves deeper into the election season, let your students analyze the two images: then compare the political climate of 1900 to 2016. How do candidates travel to different venues? How do they get "their message to the people"? How are the party's nominees chosen? Analyze the ticket to the 1900 Democratic National Convention. Why is Jefferson's picture on the ticket? Where will the 2016 conventions be held? Can anyone attend if they have a ticket? If a citizen is not a delegate, how does he/she have a voice in choosing the parties nominee?
