Campaign of 1884

There were six parties in the campaign of 1884. In addition to the two major parties there were two minor parties, and what might be called off-shoots from each of the two minor parties, making six in all. The Prohibition Party of this year drops the word "Reform" from its name. It is often referred to, however, as the Prohibition Reform Party or the National Prohibition Home Protection Party, although it repudiates the latter title in its platform of 1884. Another, very small group of Prohibitionists appeared as the American Prohibition National Party.

The Anti-Monopoly Party of this year nominated the same candidates as the Greenbackers. And this latter group now appears as the Greenback National Party. It is sometimes referred to as the National Party or the Greenback-Labor Party.
