Abstract:
After Lincoln's assassination, North Carolina-born Vice President Andrew Johnson faced insurmountable challenges as the newly appointed southern Democrat President. Johnson wished to follow Lincoln's precedent in preserving the Union and to make Reconstruction as swift as possible, but radicals in Congress such as Thaddeus Stevens wished to treat the seceded states as a conquered nation. These radicals opposed Johnson at every turn and after multiple failed attempts to impeach the President, finally succeeded. Johnson later served as a Tennessee Senator where he was instrumental in getting legislation passed that changed the succession line making the Speaker of the House follow the Vice President.

Abstract:
It may surprise many to learn the Andrew Johnson, 17th President of the United States, grew up impoverished in Raleigh without an education. In fact, Johnson could not even read or write until he reached manhood, a skill he learned from his 17-year-old bride. Despite his handicaps, Johnson had courage and an inherent love for his fellowman, and is known as the Defender of the Constitution.
