Meeting in Kentucky protests the economic domination of the East Coast

Carroll County, Kentucky, 1857
11/05/1859
A meeting was held at Ghent in Carroll County, Kentucky to protest the capitalist domination of the cities and states of the Atlantic Coast over the Mississippi Valley. Resolutions calling for more industry in the valley and for additional conventions in the area on the question were passed.  Little more was heard of this movement, however. (By John Osborne)
