Compatriot Presidents of the United States

Rutherford Birchard Hayes (19th President of the United States)

Rutherford Birchard Hayes

‚Äč

Rutherford B. Hayes served for one term from 1877 to 1881 as the nineteenth U.S. president. He was born in Delaware, Ohio, on October 4, 1822, and graduated from Harvard Law School. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Hayes enlisted in the Union Army, was wounded five times, and rose to the rank of major general. He served in the House of Representatives and served as the governor of Ohio for three terms. The nation was still suffering from the pangs of the Civil War when he became president. One of his first actions was to withdraw Federal troops from the southern states. Hayes enjoyed being president, but disliked politics and chose not to run for a second presidential term. President Hayes was very proud of his ancestry, and especially of his Revolutionary War ancestors. He became an early member of the SAR. President Hayes died in Fremont, Ohio, on January 17, 1893.
