Fraud of the Century. Goodreads, ​www.goodreads.com/book/show/151255.Fraud_of

_the_Century. Accessed 15 Dec. 2017.

This is a illustration of the two presidential candidates, Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel

Tilden. It’s tilted “Fraud of the Century” because of the Compromise of 1877, allowing

for the election of Hayes but removing the troops in the South. I put it on the “Historical

Context” page because this image was made right after the election took place, and

before what my project is focused on.

Frost, A. B. ​Of Course He Wants to Vote the Democratic Ticket.​ 21 Oct. 1876. ​The Newberry,

dcc.newberry.org/items/of-course-he-wants-to-vote-the-democratic-ticket. Accessed 15

Dec. 2017.

This is an illustration that was a political drawing showing racial inequality in the south.

It shows a African American man holding a vote ticket with two white men besides him

holding two guns to his head. I used this as a primary resource on my “The Great

Betrayal of 1877” page. I felt that this would be a good spot for this photo it shows what

people in the South could get away with. The troops being in the South protected the

African Americans from things like this, but without them, nothing could protect them.
Nast, Thomas. ​Compromise--Indeed!​ 27 Jan. 1876. ​History on the Net​,

Accessed 5 Dec. 2017.

This is an illustration that was propaganda used in 1876 Presidential election. It was

called“Compromise--Indeed!” and depicts someone holding a gun and a whip while

another person has a news paper titled “Tilden or Blood”. I plan on using this in my

website as a background image for my “thesis”. I felt that this would be a good image for

this page because it shows a piece of art that was used to show the conflict between the

two presidential candidates.

Nast, Thomas. ​Compromise with the South​. 3 Sept. 1864. ​Harp Week Cartoons​,

www.harpweek.com/09Cartoon/BrowseByDateCartoon.asp?Month=September&Date=3.

Accessed 5 Dec. 2017.

This is a piece of propaganda from the year of 1864, that depicts a Confederate soldier

meeting with a wounded Union soldier over a grave. The headstone of the grave reads “In

memory of the Union soldiers who died in a useless war”. There is also a woman crying

on the side of the grave and a fire on the side of the “North” and healthy looking people

and good looking land on the “South” side. The reason why this piece of propaganda was

drawn like this was to make it appear as if the North had lost everything to defeat the

South while the South was living in prosperity. I used this as a background image on my

“Home” page. I feel that this was useful on this page because it showed the different

exchanges that happened between the two areas, and what each side got in the end of the
Civil War.

This is a illustration of the presidential candidate for Samuel J. Tilden in the election in

1876. I planned on using this image in my project as a background image for the page

“Democrat Party” because he was the candidate for this political party.

Rutherford B. Hayes​. ​History.com​, www.history.com/topics/us-presidents/rutherford-b-hayes.

Accessed 5 Dec. 2017.

This is a photograph of the 19th president of the United States of America, Rutherford B.

Hayes. This is an image of him before he won his campaign, making him still a

presidential candidate. I planned on using this photo on my website as a background

image for one of my pages, the “Republican Party”. I felt that this would be a good image

for this page because it is an accurate, real image of this person and he was the

presidential candidate for the Republican party in the year of 1876.

The Electoral College. History, Art & Archives,

history.house.gov/Institution/Origions-Development/Electoral-College/. Accessed 11 Jan.

2018.
This is a illustration of the Electoral College creating the Compromise of 1877. The

members are sitting around a candle-lite table discussion something or in a meeting. I

used this photo on the “Overall Impact” page as the background because I felt that it fit

well with this page because this compromise had a big effect on racial relations right after

the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era.

The Reconstruction Period.​ ​The BeZINE,

7/. Accessed 11 Jan. 2018.

This is a illustration of a man standing in between a group of African Americans and a

group of white people. He is hold his hand up to the group of white people who have

weapons, as if he was protecting the African Americans. I plan on using this as a

background and a image on one of my pages. I feel that it fit well because it relates to the

conflict between the races at the time.

also lead me to other sources that provided me with information regarding this topic. I

I integrated this website into my research and creation of my website by using the ideas

and rewording/reworking what was there. It gave me a great summary of what happened
from before, during, and after the creation of the Compromise of 1877. I plan on using

this within the “overall impact” tab of my website because unlike the other websites, it

has detailed information about the effects of the creation of this compromise.

I used this website for my project to help me gather more information about the main

people involved, which included: U.S. congress, the two presidential candidates, and

leaders from both political parties. I plan on integrating the information I gathered from

this website onto the “historical context”. The website had great information about the

two presidential candidates, Tilden and Hayes. It also gave great information on the

events after the election, how the people of the United States reacted as well as the

government.

of America, Rutherford B. Hayes. This website describes his political views and what he

accomplished while in office. I plan on integrating this into my website on the “historical

background” and “The Great Betrayal” tabs because I feel that there's is viable

information that I can pull from this one website that would fit perfectly on both tabs.

This website was useful to my research for many reasons. It gave me both primary and

secondary sources, in the form of information and propaganda, illustrations, and

photographs. It gave me information about the presidential candidates (at the time), and

more information about their views. I plan on integrating the information I gathered from

this website by using the primary resources that I located. I also plan on using the

information I gathered within the “overall impact”, “The Great Betrayal”, and the

“historical background” tabs because the information that can be taken from this website

would greatly benefit my research.

The Most Sensational, Sordid & Questionable Presidential Election in American History​. 2003.

This interview was not filmed by me; however, it provides great information regarding

topics in my project like “The Great Betrayal”. Of the 58 total minutes in this video, the

only parts used were around one minute clips. I decided to place these clips on pages like

“The Compromise of 1877” and “The Great Betrayal” because the interview talks

specifically these events.
