A screamingly close presidential election. Allegations of fraud. Democrats and republicans, North and South, black and white--all at loggerheads.
With each passing day, the conflict becomes more complex. Hard-eyed political operatives from both parties rush south to fight on every front. "Spin" is everywhere, the truth hardly to be found. From coast to coast, Americans alternate between anger, astonishment and despair.
One candidate got more popular votes. But he will ultimately be defeated by an astonishing sequence of events--culminating in the tie-breaking vote of a single Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
It's not the year 2000. It's 1876.
It's the election that ended the Civil War--and set the stage for eighty bitter years of segregation in the South. We live in its shadow still.
Read the full story. You'll never look at American politics the same way again.
