The Election of 1876


The 1876 presidential election stands out as one of the most contentious in American history. Despite Samuel Tilden winning the popular vote, Rutherford Hayes secured an additional electoral college vote following deliberations among party leaders. Allegations of fraud, counterfeit electors, and voter intimidation marred the process. In this lecture, we’ll explore the historical backdrop of this election and draw comparisons to recent elections. Join us for an insightful discussion and light refreshments!
