  • Rutherford Hayes is one of that mass of post-Civil War 19th century Presidents that all fade into one another so that school kids forget they existed. He was one of seven Presidents born in Ohio and is probably best known for having more facial hair than any other President besides his immediate successor, James Garfield. My knowledge of American history up to this point was only enough to say that Rutherford Hayes fell somewhere in that Chester Arthur phase of mutton-chop Presidents. Reading up on the significant events and accomplishments of the Hayes Presidency doesn't really make me feel guilty for my ignorance. Rutherford B. Hayes was born in 1822 in the town of Delaware, Ohio, to people who'd recently come west from Vermont. His father died when he was just 10 weeks old, and he was raised mostly by his mother (who never remarried) with the help of an uncle. He went east long enough to graduate from Harvard Law School in 1845, then spent the 1850s practicing law in Cincinnati, where he gained a reputation as a defender of escaped slaves accused under the Fugitive Slave Act. This made him a sort of darling of the Cincinnati-area Republican Party, and they kept trying to promote him to judge right up until the start of the Civil War. Abolitionist Republicans fell out of favor in Cincinnati once the war kicked off, and Hayes lost all his political standing, so he signed up for the army even though he sort-of thought the Union should just let the South go. The army made him a major and sent him off to fight the Confederates in what soon would be the state of West Virginia. (I'll talk about that at some point in the near future; I've already got it written.) The Union army had a really fast-track promotion scheme in those days, though, and it wasn't long before Hayes was named a brevet brigadier general. This makes Hayes one of 12 army generals to have gone on to be President. (The other branches need to step up.) Hayes sprained his ankle in one battle and got hit in the head with a spent casing in another, but he otherwise made it out of the war just fine. In 1864, Ohio's second U.S. Congressional District elected Hayes as Representative, even tough he was too busy getting shot at in Virginia to actually campaign, so when the war ended, Hayes went to Washington. He quit his representative gig when Ohio elected him governor in 1867, but he was a Republican governor presiding over a Democratic legislature, so there wasn't all that much he could do. He only served one term, and in 1873, he and his wife, Lucy, retired with their 8 children to Spiegel Grove, the house seen above. But it turned out that though Hayes might have been done with politics, politics wasn't done with Hayes. The Republicans drafted him almost against his will to run for Governor again in 1875, and he did so well in that race that they decided to nominate him for the Presidency in 1876, even though he kind of didn't want to be President. The Presidential Election of 1876 came at a delicate time in U.S. history, when the nation was still recovering from the Civil War and was mired in economic stagnation while enduring the assassination of a war President (Lincoln), the impeachment of a bad President (Johnson), and the corruption-plague administration of an incompetent President (Grant). The election resulted in a lot of electoral college shenanigans that left the outcome in three states in doubt, and while the remaining states gave the Democrat more electoral votes, it left him one vote short of a majority. So the thing got thrown to Congress, and Congress decided to make a deal. Southern Democrats agreed to support Hayes for the Presidency if Northern Republicans would put an official end to "Reconstruction," the post-Civil-War period when Federal troops were still occupying the South to make sure freed black people could do things like vote and exist in the wider society without being lynched by the Ku Klux Klan. The end of Reconstruction would bring those troops home and leave the South to do whatever it wanted, which Congress thought was worth having a Republican President. So despite receiving fewer popular votes and fewer electoral votes, Rutherford B. Hayes was inaugurated 19th President of the United States on March 3, 1877. The fact that I have thus far written 751 words in this post about the Hayes Presidency without actually talking about the Hayes Presidency should tell you something about how important the Hayes Presidency was to American history. Aside from his election marking the end of Reconstruction and allowing the South dive headlong into the Jim Crow era, Hayes wasn't all that significant, and not a lot happened. He tried to reform the civil service with moderate success. An economic depression that had started in 1873 mostly continued, with only some mild recovery toward the end of his administration. And he almost went to war with Mexico, but avoided it. In general, Hayes was a pro-business President who put an end to a big railroad strike, but then again, so was everybody else in those days. Hayes decided not to run for re-election in 1880, and he was succeeded by James Garfield, another Ohio Republican who didn't really want to be President. Only Garfield wound up getting shot a year into his Presidency, so Hayes got the better deal. After 1880, Hayes retired to Spiegel Grove, where he and Lucy lived out the rest of their lives. Lucy died in 1889, and Rutherford followed her after a heart attack at Speigel Grove four years later, even though he didn't really want to.

  • The final resting place of both President Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife, Lucy Webb Hayes, is at one corner of the Spiegel Grove estate in Fremont, Ohio. The remains of a horse Hayes rode during the Civil War also are supposed to be on the estate somewhere, but I didn't know that at the time and didn't go looking for them. I've mostly kept quiet on here about who I support in the ongoing process to name the Democratic candidate who will face Donald Trump in November, but it's looking more and more like the nomination is going to go to Bernie Sanders. There are a lot of reasons I think Bernie Sanders is a bad choice that I won't discuss in a public forum until he actually gets elected President, but one significant factor I will discuss is that he'll bring back a problem we haven't seen since the administration of Rutherford B. Hayes: his last name ends with an 'S.' So if Bernie wins, will it be Sanders' Administration or Sanders's Administration? The Chicago Style Manual says one thing; the Associated Press says another. So which is it? Can a nation as divided as ours ever come to consensus on something like this? I don't think I could take four years of the back and forth. (We wouldn't have that problem if we just picked Elizabeth Warren. Just sayin'.)

  • This was an unplanned stop. We left Toledo heading east on the Ohio Turnpike with the intention of getting off at an exit that would take us up to the Marblehead Peninsula. As I was pulling off the highway, though, I noticed a brown sign for the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Home and Museum pointing in the opposite direction from where we meant to go. Now, I know an unusually high number of Presidents had their origins in Ohio (Ohio's big for astronauts, too), but I had no idea Rutherford B. Hayes had his house anywhere near our path. So on a whim, I pulled into a motel parking lot and used Robin's intellectual telephone to google the Rutherford B. Hayes house, and sure enough, it turned out to be only 4.6 miles away in the little town of Fremont! So I asked Robin if she was up for a 4.6-mile diversion, and she was, so we went. The road signs directed us along a winding path that was more like 10 miles than 4.6, probably because all the Rutherford B. Hayes traffic is hard for the back roads to handle, but we got there after about 15 minutes. On the right in this image is the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library. Built in 1916, this claims to be the first library ever built dedicated to holding the personal papers and books of a President. though I seem to remember some other library making the same claim. There are 12,000 books in there that once belonged to Rutherford Hayes, along with all the official documentation of all Hayes's accomplishments, which are contained in a manila folder. On the left of this image, you can catch a glimpse of Spiegel Grove, the house built in 1860 that Rutherford Hayes inherited from his uncle in 1873. It's large and fancy, and you can take tours, but we didn't.
