Today in History

October 4

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.

October 29

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.
