40 Compromise of 1877 184 166 185 DISPUTED ELECTION “Rutherfraud” Rutherford B. Hayes(R-OH)Samuel Tilden(D-NY)185“Rutherfraud”By 1876, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Florida were the only states that still had garrisons of federal troops supporting the Republican state governments through force of arms. All three states had disputed election returns due to massive fraud by both parties. An Electoral Commission, voting on party lines, certified the election for Hayes, who had been twenty votes shy of victory (while Tilden had been only one vote shy). Democrats in Congress staged a filibuster in protest, but a compromise was reached in which the Democrats would accept the result in return for the removal of federal troops from the South and a promise from Hayes not to intervene in the Southern states’ internal politics (i.e., not enforcing the Fifteenth Amendment).
