Thomas A. Hendricks: A Democrat Through and Through – News Block

The official vice president portrait of Thomas A. Hendricks, Grover Cleveland's twenty-first vice president

A lifelong Democrat, Thomas A. Hendricks was the definition of a party man, voting the party line time and time again, even if modern-day Democrats would be horrified by his voting record.

In fact, his rise to power during the Reconstruction Era saw this Southern Democrat oppose all attempts to close the gap created by slavery, including supporting Andrew Johnson after his impeachment and voting against the amendments. thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.

And this did not happen with his election as Vice President, if anything, it only strengthened his resolve and gave him more power to execute his agenda.
