  • Rutherford B. Hayes by Hans L. Trefousse--Audiobook Excerpt

    Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Hans L. Trefousse's biography Rutherford B. Hayes, part of The American Presidents Series. Hayes was a leader of the Reconstruction era, whose contested election eerily parallels the election debacle of 2000. The disputed election of 1876 between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden, in which Congress set up a special electoral commission, handing the disputed electoral votes to Hayes, brings recent events into sharp focus.
