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 American Civil War.
A Democrat, he championed populist measures and supported states’ rights. During the 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.
