Rutherford B. Hayes

Rutherford B. HayesNineteenth president, 1877–1881, Although Republican candidate Rutherford B. Hayes did not win the popular vote in the 1876 general election, he was awarded the necessary electoral votes after the two major parties struck a bargain. In return for necessary electoral votes, Hayes withdrew federal troops from the South, thus ending Reconstruction and the federal commitment to African American civil rights., A Civil War veteran, Hayes used military force to put down the Great Railroad Strike of 1877 but privately expressed reservations about his decision. He initiated some mild reforms of the civil service system, and he tried to promote the cultural assimilation of Native Americans through the education system. He also attempted to prevent inflation by vetoing a bill that proposed to reinstate the minting of silver coins. (Congress overrode his veto.) Hayes chose not to run for a second term and retired to Ohio., 19o presidente, 1877–1881, Aunque el candidato republicano Rutherford B. Hayes no ganó el voto popular en las elecciones generales de 1876, sí recibió los votos necesarios del Colegio Electoral luego de que los dos partidos principales llegaran a un acuerdo. A cambio de los votos necesarios, Hayes retiró las tropas federales de tierras sureñas, con lo cual dio fin a la Reconstrucción y al compromiso federal respecto a los derechos civiles de los afroamericanos., Veterano de la Guerra Civil, Hayes empleó la fuerza militar para sofocar la gran huelga ferroviaria de 1877, pero en privado expresó dudas sobre su decisión. Inició reformas modestas en el sistema de servicio civil y trató de promover la asimilación cultural de los nativos americanos mediante el sistema de educación. También trató de evitar la inflación vetando una ley que proponía restablecer la acuñación de monedas de plata. (El Congreso invalidó el veto.) Hayes decidió no postularse de nuevo por un segundo término y se retiró al estado de Ohio., Eliphalet Frazer Andrews [1835-1915], 1881-1882; purchased by the Corcoran Gallery of Art, 1882; Gift to NPG, 2019.
