Southern Values and the 1844 Election in the South Carolina Press

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This exploration South Carolina newspapers in the 1844 presidential election demonstrates that most editors assumed a sectional tone when discussing campaign politics. Furthermore, it shows that newspapers actively supported presidential candidates even though the state’s electorate did not vote for president. Finally, this paper argues that the tariff was the primary campaign issue for South Carolinians, contrary to prior historians’ assertions that Polk won the South based on his support for the annexation of Texas.
