As danny has already said, we’ve met and made some progress on the Political section of the wiki page. Our plan right now is to establish both national and local context that is related to our 3 mini-sections. Discussing events such as the Compromise of 1877, the presidential election of 1876, local elections, conflicts in the west, government policies, etc. will help us paint a general picture of the political transition that defined the nation and Cumberland County during this time period.
