The similarities between the controversial elections of 1876 and 2000 have brought Rutherford B. Hayes back into public memory. In 1876, Hayes's opponent, Samuel Tilden, won the popular vote and led the Electoral College, but when the returns in some states were disputed, a special electoral commission handed the presidency to Hayes. Historian Hans L. Trefousse recounts the obstacles, triumphs, and real legacy of Hayes' presidency.

I wanted to learn about Rutherford B. Hays... I was just hoping to do so with some excitement or intrigue monologue. this was incredibly boring on a subject I am genuinely interested in learning. I will decline to listen to more books by this author and narrator.
