1888 United States election.

Quiz Image

Grandson of President William Henry Harrison, Benjamin Harrison seems almost pre-ordained to become President. The refusal of James G. Blaine to seek the nomination at the Republican National Convention has resulted in Harrison's nomination on the eighth ballot.

There are times when Grover Cleveland seems like a one-man army. In 1884, he upset the postbellum order, seizing the presidency as a reformist and a Bourbon Democrat. He has achieved mixed results. His liberal use of the veto, especially for Civil War pensions and the Texas Seed Bill, has frustrated some. Elsewhere, he is a committed sound money man and a foreign policy non-interventionist.
