    Election of 1876: the closest American presidential election in history with Rutherford Hayes wining by one vote. Disputes over the voting led to the Compromise of 1877 which ultimately pushed African Americans out of power into the racially segregated era of Jim Crow laws.
    Jim Crow: the systematic Southern practice of discriminating against African Americans. The name originates from an African American minstrel character in a song and dance act of 1828.
  • 3. Essential Understandings
