Historic Overview

The Silver Party was a Nevada political party active in the 1890s. The party supported a platform of bimetallism and "Free Silver." In 1892 the Silver Party elected several candidates to Nevada public offices. The party's success continued throughout the decade, culminating in the election of Governors John E. Jones and Reinhold Sadler. Nationally the Silver Party aligned with the Populist Party and to a lesser extent with the Silver Republican Party. By 1902 most pro-silver factions in Nevada had been absorbed by the state Democratic Party organization.
