The American Party is a conservative party in the United States. Originally called the American Independent Party, it was renamed in 1969 by representatives from 37 states. Following the 1972 election, the American Party split from the American Independent Party. Both of the parties have nominated candidates for the presidency and other offices, although the AIP has considered itself a California affiliate of the Constitution Party. In New York, the party ran a state ticket in 1974 under the name of Courage Party, because a state law there prohibits the use of the word "American" on the ballot. The American Party won its strongest finish in the 1976 presidential election; nominee Tom Anderson carried 161,000 votes (6th place).

In 1990, a small number of members of the party began The Christian Party, whose membership reportedly grew at a faster rate, but ultimately nothing came of it.Dennis, Delmar "The American Party" Contra Mundum Volume 4 (Summer 1992), pages 46-47.

The American Party has not achieved ballot status in any state since 1996.
