Hayes was elected president in one of the most hotly contested elections in U.S. history. Although he lost the popular vote to Democrat Samuel J. Tilden, Hayes barely won the presidency after a Congressional commission awarded him twenty disputed electoral votes.
As president, he oversaw the end of Reconstruction and America's entry into the Second Industrial Revolution. Hayes was a reformer who started what would lead to civil service reform.
Before becoming president, Hayes put his political career on hold to join the Union Army. Wounded five times, most seriously at the Battle of South Mountain, he earned a reputation for bravery in combat and was promoted to the rank of major general. After the war ended, he served in the U.S. Congress from 1865 to 1867. Hayes left Congress to run for Governor of Ohio and was elected to two terms, serving from 1867 to 1871. After his second term had ended, he resumed the practice of law for a time, but returned to politics in 1875 to serve a third term as governor.
