Samuel Tilden, the Real 19th President
Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2006
Now online video viewers interested in history can learn about Samuel Tilden in five minutes by a click of their mouse. The video presentation, "Samuel Tilden, the Real 19th President," is available free online at Google and You Tube dot com. The award nominated short was produced as a program idea to A&E, the History channel and other historical programming channels before the election 2000 dispute.
Producer/Author Oldaker states, "The video and my new book, "Samuel Tilden, the Real 19th President" go hand and hand and both tell the true story of Tilden's 1876 election fiasco. The paperback, tells the story in its entirety and the video presentation reveals in five minutes how the election dispute nearly sparked a second Civil War. I believe when people read the book and learn what Tilden went through they will realize how important it is that every vote is counted." The book has been forwarded to the current crop of prospective 2008 Democratic presidential contenders as well as President Clinton and VP Al Gore.

Presidential disinformation corruption was born in 1876. As the saying goes, history does repeat itself, and author Nikki Oldaker, in her new book "Samuel J. Tilden -- The Real 19th President," takes us back in time behind the scenes of the 1876 Tilden Hayes election, which was referenced with Gore/Bush 2000 election dispute and then again with Kerry/Bush in 2004. Her book includes Tilden's biographer John Bigelow writings from "The Life of Samuel J. Tilden" and renews the warning to all future presidential candidates -- beware!
Tilden was a reformer, who busted up the Tweed Ring, and after his election win had to deal with the corrupt administration of President Grant that conspired to cheat Tilden out of his Presidency. Oldaker did research at the New York Public Library, which was Samuel Tilden's gift to the American people. She also did research at the National Arts Club, which was originally Tilden's home and today a historical landmark. She read numerous books and documents as well as newspaper accounts to write a compelling screenplay about the four months of conflict and voters protest demonstrations that uncannily prefigured the Bush/Gore dispute.
Nikki Oldaker is "a natural" who excels at whatever she undertakes. She plunged into her political breech in the 1992 Democratic Political Convention and two more successive ones managing "The VIP Backstage Room" for candidates and speakers who went before the TV cameras in 2000 and 2004. She was educated and lived on Longboat Key and Fairfield, CT...Currently she resides with her husband Eric in Clearwater, FL.
Nikki reveals why she invested her time and money on the Tilden project and states unequivocally," Tilden is one of America's most precious icons. Why he has been forsaken by our government and his party is beyond me. People are in awe when I talk about him, especially when I tell them about his gift to the American people, The New York Public Library. Re-introducing this Centennial Hero to the 21st Century has been a challenge for the main stream media and I would like to get their undivided attention on the subject for just one day. Tilden was a true patriot and deserves our respect. A quote made by John Bigelow about Tilden describes what we lost best when Tilden's election was stolen by one Electoral College vote. Readers can find Bigelow's powerful statement in the final pages of my book." This book would make the perfect holiday gift for history buffs.
