Biography | show moreshow less
Hayes (1822-1893), the 19th President of the United States (1877-1881), served the Union cause with distinction during the Civil War, suffering a serious wound while leading a charge at South Mountain (1862) and rising by 1864 to the rank of Brigadier General. He served Ohio in the U.S. Congress (1865-1867) and then as Governor (1868-1872, 1876-1877). The Republican nominee in 1876, he was finally declared the winner of a bitterly disputed Presidential election in which he lost the popular vote and won the Electoral vote by a margin of one after 20 disputed Electoral Votes were awarded to Hayes by a special commission voting 5-4 on straight party lines. Hayes withdrew federal troops from the South, effectively ending Reconstruction. A reformer, he worked to curb the corruption in government which had been rampant during the Grant administration.
