Summary
"When Lincoln was assassinated and Andrew Johnson became President, a fraught time in America became perilous. Congress was divided over how Reconstruction should be accomplished and the question of black suffrage. The South roiled with violence, lawlessness, and efforts to preserve the pre-Civil War society. Andrew Johnson ... had no interest in following Lincoln's agenda. With the unchecked power of executive orders, Johnson pardoned the rebel states and their leaders, opposed black suffrage, and called Reconstruction unnecessary. Congress decided to take action against a President who acted like a king"--
Summary
An account of the impeachment of Andrew Johnson shares insights into the 17th President's disregard of Congress, opposition to civil rights and anti-Reconstruction stance, exploring the roles of such impeachment contributors as Ulysses S. Grant and Thaddeus Stevens
