This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Rutherford B Hayes & a summary of issues which lead to his election. Both presentations together number 30 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
Rutherford B. Hayes, the 19th President of the United States, oversaw the end of Reconstruction, began the efforts that led to civil service reform, and attempted to reconcile the divisions left over from the Civil War and Reconstruction.
He won a controversial and fiercely disputed election against Samuel Tilden. He withdrew troops from the Reconstruction states in order to restore local control and good will, a decision that many perceived as a betrayal of African Americans in the South.
Hayes declined to run for the presidency a 2nd time, and retired from politics after his term in the Oval Office ended in 1881. After leaving the White House, Hayes and his wife Lucy returned to Fremont, OH, where Hayes devoted himself to educational issues and prison reform, among other humanitarian causes.
