520    This thesis examines the presidential elections of both 
       1896 and 1912 from all angles and their lasting impact on 
       modern elections. It looks deeply into the platforms of 
       the Democrat and Republican parties' platform, the 
       influence of third Parties, the importance of the 
       candidate-centered organized campaign, the necessity of 
       fundraising and the use of technology and media. It also 
       attempts to explain the fact that political capital was no
       longer located in the Northeast and parts of the South, 
       but in the Midwest, Deep South, and parts of the Far West.
       Primary and secondary sources were used to explore these 
       two elections and then to help compare them to modern day 
       political contest. This thesis attempts to prove that the 
       lessons of 1896 and 1912 can be applied to modern day 
       elections
