The Democratic party.


In the Compromise of 1877, the government decided who would be the president. In the election of 1876, there was a lot of voting fraud, so the House of Representatives decided the results. The opponents were Rutherford B. Hayes, and Samuel Tilden. Mr. Hayes was in the Republican party, and the Democratic party had Mr. Tilden. As you may have guessed, Rutherford Hayes won, and became the 19th president.
