Joke-Rutherford Hayes

Though this joke was not told during the Civil War, it was made about a veteran of the Civil War: President Rutherford B. Hayes.

The President was a temperance man and would not allow alcohol to be served in the White House. At his first reception, the staff did not serve intoxicating beveridges. A Washington wit said,"The water flowed like wine."
