Despite losing control of their movement and enduring an invective-filled campaign, most liberal republicans remained in surprisingly good spirits after Grant's re-election in 1872. Political pressure had forced Grant to adopt some of the liberal republican positions during the 1872 campaign, such as continuing the funding of the Civil Service Commission, lowering some tariff rates, and passing the Amnesty Bill of 1872. Out of the ashes of defeat in 1872, the liberal republicans had achieved their objective of influencing the Republican Party in order to reform the nation and preserve its republican institutions.
