When you don't constantly study a subject things you once knew become lost to memory.

Was listening to a book review about the causes of the Civil War and was reminded that the Know Nothings were critical to the formation of the Republican Party. The Know Nothings were protestant evangelicals who detested Catholicism and therefore Irish immigration. They formed a coalition with anti-slavery evangelicals that became the Republican Party. I find no significant difference between the Know Nothings and the so-called Tea Party.
