President Andrew Johnson

Andrew Johnson became the 17th President of the United States (1865-1869) after the assassination of President Abraham LincolnCreated by: PICRYLDated: 2016
National Union ticket. For President Abraham Lincoln. For Vice President Andrew Johnson. [Campaign ticket]
Andrew Johnson was the 17th President of the United States (1865-1869). Johnson became president as he was vice president at the time of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. A Democrat who ran with Lincoln on the National Union ticket, Johnson came to office as the Civil War concluded. The new president favored quick restoration of the seceded states to the Union. His plans did not give protection to the former slaves, and he came into conflict with the Republican-dominated Congress, culminating in his impeachment by the House of Representatives.
"There are no good laws but such as repeal other laws."
