Rutherford B Hayes was the 19th President of the United States, serving from 1877 to 1881. He was a lawyer and a Union officer during the Civil War, and his presidency was marked by the end of Reconstruction and the withdrawal of federal troops from the South. Hayes was a moderate Republican who sought to heal the nation's wounds after the war, but his presidency was also marked by controversy and political turmoil. Despite his efforts to address the nation's economic and social issues, Hayes's presidency was ultimately overshadowed by the scandals and corruption of the Gilded Age.
