Republican Party was formed in the 1850 s. The Republican Party plays more emphasis on private enterprise and often accuse the Democrats of making the government to expensive. For that reason, Americans tend to think of the Republican Party as more conservative.
The most outstanding representative of the Republican Party was Abraham Lincoln. He ended slavery and reunited the country. He held the nation together in its most difficult time.
Dwight Eisenhower is famous for ending the war in Korea and lessening troubles with the Soviet Union.
Ronald Reagan was known as the Great Communicator . And he also launched the largest peacetime military buildup in American history. He worked to reduce inflation and led the fight to reduce taxes.
