This epilogue focuses on Henry George's last days. The disastrous United Labor Party (ULP) campaign of 1887 marked the end of one phase of George's public life and the dawning of another. For the next ten years, George focused on winning the hearts of the American middle class to his single tax program. He traveled to different parts of the world to speak about the single tax and tariff reform, receiving honors and accolades from land reform advocates along the way. He then began writing another book, The Science of Political Economy, a summation of his philosophy of economics and morality. By 1892, George had withdrawn almost completely from the national single tax movement. On October 5, 1897, he accepted the nomination of The Party of Thomas Jefferson, a coalition of united reform groups, as candidate for mayor of New York City. On October 29, 1897, however, he suffered a stroke and he died, surrounded by his wife, sons, and close friends.
