Oldaker plans to meet and mingle and introduce her new Samuel Tilden, the Real 19th President book to hundreds of attendees at Book Expo America NYC. Librarians and Teachers are her target because she wants to encourage them to consider including her adaptation as one of their 2008 purchases.

New York, NY, May 31, 2007 --( Years of research and writing about the disputed 1876 election is what went into the book about Samuel Tilden's controversial election against Rutherford B. Hayes. Oldaker is looking forward to meeting and mingling and introducing herself to hundreds of exhibtors and attendees at Book Expo America. Librariaians and teachers are the people she hopes to entice so that they will buy the book for their readers.

A must read book for history buffs and voters before the 2008 elections. Presidential disinformation corruption was born in 1876 and as the saying goes, history does repeat itself. 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.

NY Governor Tilden, AKA, the “Great Reformer” busted the infamous Tweed and Canal Rings. Nikki was in awe of Tilden's political integrity and in 1997, she wrote a movie script about his conflict with Rutherford B. Hayes, titled, "Tilden." She researched numerous books and historical documents as well as newspaper accounts to write a compelling screenplay. The four months of conflict and voters protests during the 1876/1877 demonstrations uncannily looks similar to the last two Presidential elections.

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. This curiosity led her to Tilden and his presidency that was stolen by just one Electoral College vote.

The book is being exhibited at the Book Expo NYC, by R.J. Communications, booth #1702. It can also be purchased at all online bookstores or at the Samuel Tilden’s website –

To celebrate the debut of the book the Author's Production Company is giving away two $100 VISA gift cards in a business card draw, plus a copy of the book. The winners will be posted on the website along with a blog update of the event.
