    The original English radical Whigs comprised the extreme elements of the Whig movement that grew up in England around the first Earl of Shaftesbury in the very late s and the s. The Whigs, centered in Parliament, stood in opposition to what they saw as the centralizing and absolutizing tendencies of Charles II and the Stuart line of Kings.   A Whig minister, I admit, may improve the province— he will not restore the nation.

Get this from a library. Reasons for restoring the Whigs. [William Oldisworth] -- A political satire. The opinions maintained in that book never can lead to an extreme, because their foundation is laid in an opposition to extremes.” In his Peoria Address, Lincoln sought to correct Whigs who feared being cast as radicals if they supported restoring the Missouri Compromise.

"Holt's history of the Whigs, the fruit of many long hard years of research and writing, is an important work."--American Historical Review "The Rise and Fall of the Whig Party is a magesterial work, one that cannot be neglected by nineteenth-century historians even if their particular emphasis is not political history.

While it is intended to be the history of a political party, it has Cited by: Whigs opposed what they viewed as the tyrannical rule of Andrew Jackson. For this reason, they named themselves after the eighteenth-century British-American Whigs, who stood in opposition to King George.

Whigs believed in an active federal government committed to internal improvements, including the establishment of a national bank. Accordingly, the Whigs sought to gain and profit by, "the fears aroused by the revelations of the Popish Plot in order to win mass support for exclusion," as well as to win support in the Parliament.

Therefore, the, "major aim of whig propaganda was to keep alive the anxieties aroused by the Popish Plot.". The failure of the Stuarts to win back the English or Scottish throne changed the course of history, enabling the buildup of a highly centralized British state and, possibly, America's war for independence.

Murray Pittock chooses the best books on Jacobitism, the 18th century phenomenon that nearly overthrew the British government. For tactical reasons, the ruling class in pretended that they were merely restoring the old forms of the Constitution.

But they intended by that restoration to give sanctity and social stamp to a new social order. The important thing is that the social order was new. In one hand she holds the torch of reflection, dispelling the darkness of ignorance, passion, and whim. In the other hand, she holds a book or the tablets of the law.

Sobrious and dignified is the Whig model of liberty: the virtuous woman, the virtuous conception, common to America and to the Whigs, of “ordered liberty.” Exactly right. Whigs thereby forced the government to recognise the role of public opinion in parliamentary debate and influenced views of representation and reform throughout the 19th century.

Return to power. Whigs restored their unity by supporting moral reforms, especially the abolition of slavery. The Whigs were also the more attractive party to opponents of slavery, though the party as a whole was not exclusively anti-slavery. Nationally, the Democrats survived after the breakout of the.

The Whigs' historical reputation began to recover with the publication of The Political Culture of the American Whigs by historian Daniel Walker Howe in Rather than accepting the traditional understanding of the Whigs as Eastern elitists who sought to exploit the masses, Howe cast the Whigs as "sober, industrious, thrifty people" who sought to promote industrialization and national unity.

The Whig Party would succeed in electing two more presidents, but it would remain deeply divided. Its problems would grow as the issue of slavery strained the Union in the s.

Unable to agree upon a consistent national position on slavery, and unable to find another national issue to rally around, the Whigs would break apart by Whig and Tory, members of two opposing political parties or factions in England, particularly during the 18th ally “Whig” and “Tory” were terms of abuse introduced in during the heated struggle over the bill to exclude James, duke of York (afterward James II), from the —whatever its origin in Scottish Gaelic—was a term applied to horse thieves and.

Thirty years later, E. Carr famously joked that although the book "denounced the Whig interpretation over some pages, it did not name a single Whig except [Charles James] Fox, who was no historian, or a single historian save [Lord] Acton, who was no Whig." The book might have vanished almost unnoticed had it not been reprinted in.

Howe's Whigs were the embodiment of Horatio Alger, of upward striving, of the triumph of reason over passion, of the positive liberal state, and the counterparts of Disraeli's "one nation" conservatism.

Owen’s understanding of Restoration history yields great benefits when she considers individual plays and attempts to place them within the shifting political debates of She is particularly sensitive to the ways in which Tory and Whig dramatists use similar tropes for very different reasons.

The Whigs were also badly hurt by the short-lived Native American or Know-Nothing party, which was primarily anti-immigrant and anti-Catholic. That is just part of the answer of course. Here is another account, again too simplistic. For a brief time, many Americans supported the nativist Know-Nothing Party, concerned that the Know-Nothings might represent the only truly national party.Really, Restoration History.
