In 1912 the split in the Republican party resulted in Teddy Roosevelt launching the Progressive Party. This gave the Democrats their first viable shot since 1893 placing Woodrow Wilson in the running. Concurrently the Socialists under Eugene Debs had their best showing to date. The Prohibitionists fielded Eugene Chafin running only seven years prior to the passing of the 18th Amendment (prohibition). Bull Moose is a United States presidential election game based on the 1912 election.
