The Socialist Labor Party was established in 1877 as a result of a reorganization of its forerunner, the Workingmen's Party of the United States, launched in 1876 after the disintegration of the IWMA, North American Federation; the New York branch was largely of German immigrant composition; continued the publication of the Arbeiterzeitung. Organ der Deutschen Sektion der Internationale Arbeiter Assoziation in Nordamerika (New York), started by the German section of the IWMA, North American Federation; the SLP took a revolutionary stand under the leadership of Daniel De Leon; a moderate faction under Morris Hillquit broke away in 1901 and formed the Socialist Party.
