7. Which of the following statements is most accurate regarding America’s political climate between 1876 and 1896?
a. The influence of the president over Congress diminished
b. The party that won the presidential election also controlled Congress
c. Southern states tended to vote Republican
d. Little political power or influence was left to the states
The answer is b. The party that won the presidential election also controlled Congress. he Grant Administration was famous for it's corruption. Corruption was MASSIVE. Much like it is today. (In defense of Grant, he, himself was not corrupt. [ In fact he was honest to a flaw. He lived very much by the West Point Honor Code and really couldn't comprehend dishonesty. In the end, as he was dying of
throat cancer, he was writing his memoirs in the hopes that the sale of them would support his wife...trivia)
After the Grant administration, EVERY SINGLE Presidential candidate for the next 20 YEARS ran on an anti-corruption theme. For the most part, the successful bidders were republicans and ex-soldiers from the civil war era. Republicans were for smaller government. ]
