On October 4, 1822, Rutherford Birchard Hayes was born in
Delaware, Ohio. A graduate of Kenyon College and Harvard
Law School, Hayes entered politics after a successful law
career in Cincinnati and military service in the Civil War,
where he was wounded no less than four times. He served as
a Republican representative in Congress from 1865 to 1867
and was later elected governor of Ohio. Rutherford B. Hayes
became the nineteenth U.S. president in 1877 after a bitterly
contested election that pitted him against Democrat Samuel
J. Tilden of New York.
On October 29, 1855, recent German immigrant Carl Schurz
wrote his wife, Margarethe Meyer Schurz, expressing hope
for their future happiness. A political refugee from the
tumultuous revolutions of 1848, Schurz soon gravitated toward
political life in the United States. In addition to being
a U.S. senator from Missouri, Schurz served as secretary
of the interior under Rutherford B. Hayes.
