Andrew Johnson was the 17th president of the United States who served from 1865-1869. He had previously served a short stint as vice president in 1865 until he became president after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson is considered to be one of the worst, if not the worst president in America because he refused to work with Congress which was controlled by Radical Republicans, Republicans that wanted to punish the South and ensure African-Americans got rights. Johnson was the first president that was attempted to be impeached, but he ended up being aquitted by one vote. If he did anything good, it was buying the Alaskan territory from Russia.
Johnson was born on December 29, 1808 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Johnson died on July 31, 1875 in Elizabethton, Tennessee.
