Episode 19 - Rutherford B. Hayes

Rutherford B. Hayes was a well-educated and highly successful lawyer and family man who was wounded several times during his valiant service in the front lines of the Civil War. He rose from the House of Representatives to the governorship of his native Ohio before being chosen as a compromise candidate at the 1876 Republican Convention. Limping into the presidency after a hotly-disputed general election victory, Hayes was faced with the task of restoring confidence in a Union exhausted by Reconstruction and a Republican party mired in corruption.
