Event Details

Join us as we read through all the U.S. presidents. We have reached our nineteenth president Rutherford B. Hayes. Born in Delaware, Ohio two months after the death of his father. He served two terms in Congress, the Ohio voters elected him Governor in 1867, serving three terms. The Republican Party chose him as their presidential candidate in 1875. He won the election in 1876 only after the creation of a special commission to decide disputed electoral votes. Hayes honesty and fairness renewed respect for the presidential office.
