U S President Rutherford B. Hayes

Rutherford B Hayes, 19th President of the United States (1877–1881).

Rutherford Hayes was also Governor of Ohio and tried to heal the wounds that were created by the Civil War. His election was contentious and although he didn't win the popular vote, he won the election after a Congressionalcommission awarded him twenty disputed electoral votes.

It was a chaotic time and his presidency was no exception.
