The Impact of the Republican Party


'To man, his birthright; to labor, freedom; to him that wants to labor, work and in independence; to him that works, his dues.' This is the Republican platform. --Carl Schurz


The creation of the Republican party in Wisconsin represents the beginning of the two-party system in the United States. Wisconsinites were the first to organize those in the Whig and Democrat parties who were anti-slavery into the Republican party.
