Rutherford Hayes eventually emerged victorious from the inconclusive election of 1876, but commenced his presidency fatally compromised to Southern planters. In terms of the ‘Compromise of 1877’, Southern Democrats relinquished the presidency in exchange for a promise from Hayes to bring Radical Reconstruction to an end and withdraw Northern troops from across the South. Withdrawing the Northern army from the South was the first of three fateful betrayals that abandoned emancipated blacks to white-hot Southern rage. Two other federal institutions – Congress and the Supreme Court – would also betray blacks.
