"The Final Vote"
After the election of 1876, an electoral commission had to be set up to decide whether Rutherford B. Hayes, Republican candidate, or Samuel J. Tilden, Democratic candidate, would become the next president. It was not until March 2, 1877 that the fifteen-man Commission made the decision in favor of Hayes. This illustration appeared in "Harper's Weekly" on March 17, 1877.
