Book Description Near midnight on Election Day in November 1876, the returns coming into Republican National headquarters signaled a victory for the Democratic presidential candidate, Samuel J. Tilden. But alert Republican leaders saw that if all the states still doubtful or disputed went for their candidate, Rutherford B. Hayes would be elected. Word was sent out to four southern states that their returns were crucial for a Hayes victory. 288 pages.
I was intrigued by this title and author. Rehnquist was involved in the 2000 Supreme court decision that made George W Bush president despite his loss in the popular vote.
This book deals with the disuputed election of 1875 in which James Blaine won the popular vote but the congress made R.B. Hayes president.
Sadly the book was overloaded with not terribly relevant facts and Rehnquist had a great deal of trouble getting to the point.
