The Presidential Election of 1912


The presidential election of 1912 was an interesting one. The four men who were at the top of their partys were Willian Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Eugene V. Debs.

As with all political elections, there was controversy and changes within the election.
The winner of the popular and Electoral College votes was Woodrow Wilson.

 Some of the men listed were for limiting employment for women and children. Some were for higher tariffs for imported goods and having judges appointed by the President or govenors.

This is a very interesting read. There are pictures of many of the canidates, maps of voting across the country, and even political cartoons. Remember this was during a time when most women did not have the right to vote.
