Stolen Election: Hayes Versus Tilden - 1876 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A screamingly close presidential election. Allegations of fraud. Democrats and republicans, North and South, black and white--all at loggerheads.

With each passing day, the conflict becomes more complex. Hard-eyed political operatives from both parties rush south to fight on every front. "Spin" is everywhere, he truth hardly to be found. From coast to coast, American alternate between anger astonishment, and despair.

One candidate got more popular votes. But he will ultimately be defeated by an astonishing sequence of events--culminating in the tie-breaking vote of a single Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

It's not the year 2000. It's 1876.

It' the election that ended the Civil War--and set the stage fro eighty bitter years of segregation in the South. We live in its shadow still.

Read the full story. You'll never look at American politics the same way again.

Synopsis:

The election of 1876 was the closest, most hotly-disputed presidential election in American history, until the election of 2000. Now, in time for the 2004 election, the true (and amazing) story of 1876.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [215]-216) and index.
