Lives of the Parties: The History of Political Parties in the United States

March 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Join Librarian Robert Voyles to learn about the history of political parties in the United States from its founding to the current party system. This program examines the assortment of parties that have risen and fallen in the U.S.’s political history, their ideological origins, how their platforms developed over time, and the partisan struggles between them that shaped the political landscape.

Registration is required to attend. Free parking is available in the public lot and garage located adjacent to the library.

This program accompanies Voices and Votes: Democracy in America opening at the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center on November 16, 2024. Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the local exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
