During the Hayes Administration from 1877 - 1881, the major events included:

The end of Reconstruction ~ One of Hayes's first acts as President was to withdraw federal occupation from the South, as he had promised that he would do. On April 10, 1877, the soldiers left South Carolina, and on April 24, the last federal troops marched from Louisiana. Hayes hoped that the end of Reconstruction would restore the two-party system in the South. But, the Democrats won back their solid hold on the South.

Civil service reform ~ Hayes had fought Congress in the fight to reform the system, but, they refused to help him. However, the public supported the President, and it opened the way for later Presidents to make civil service reforms.
