What was the Farmer's Alliance?

Answer

The Farmer's Alliance was a movement that was organized by American farmers. It was developed by the farmers in 1870 when they were prosperous. The main goal of the group was to get rid of the effects of the crop-lien system. They also helped support the transportation industry. They also established an income tax to help ease the burden of repaying loans. The alliance was first formed in 1878 in Texas and quickly spread throughout the south.
