Greatest President

Record #:
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.
