Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Andrew Johnson & the defining event of his presidency. Both presentations together number 71 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Andrew Johnson, was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson, a Democrat, became president immediately following Abraham Lincoln's assassination at the conclusion of the Civil War.

A Democrat, he championed populist measures and supported states’ rights. During the U.S. Civil War, Johnson was the only Southern senator to remain loyal to the Union. Six weeks after Johnson was inaugurated as U.S. vice president in 1865, Lincoln was murdered. As president, Johnson took a moderate approach to restoring the South to the Union, and clashed with Radical Republicans.

Johnson 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. He was the first American president to be impeached in1868, but was acquitted in the Senate by one vote. He did not run for a second presidential term.

End of Presentation

Anticipating the war to eventually end, President Abraham Lincoln announces his reconstruction plan. It offers general amnesty to all white Southerners who take an oath of future loyalty and accept wartime measures abolishing slavery.

By the end of the American Civil War, the South was economically and physically devastated. The plantation system was crippled, slavery had been abolished (so the work force was no longer available), the infrastructure was destroyed, and in many places the people were without food and in some cases starving. The South was totally at the Union’s disposal for goods and services and a deep hatred of the North still existed.

The task ahead was to create a single unified country that would be governed with a strong centralized government. The issue of state's rights was dead. The country now entered the into a rebuilding period called the Reconstruction Era.

The United States eventually emerged as an industrial nation with a with a much stronger sense of nationalism and the beginning of western migration onto lands increasingly opened to settlement.
