Theme: After the Civil War, whites overcame the Plains Indians fierce resistance and settled the Great West, bringing to a close the long frontier phase of American history.

Theme: The farmers who populated the West found themselves the victims of an economic revolution in agriculture.

Their efforts culminated in the Populist Partys attempt to create an interracial farmer/labor coalition in the 1890s, but William Jennings Bryans defeat in the pivotal election of 1896 signaled the triumph of urbanism and the middle class.
