Summary
When Lincoln was assassinated and Andrew Johnson became President, a fraught time in America became perilous. Congress was divided over how Reconstruction should be accomplished, and the question of black suffrage. The South roiled with violence, lawlessness, and efforts to preserve the pre-Civil War society. Johnson had no interest in following Lincoln's agenda. With the unchecked power of executive orders, Johnson pardoned the rebel states and their leaders, opposed black suffrage, and called Reconstruction unnecessary. Wineapple examines Johnson's impeachment-- the first in American history-- and shows that it was a last-ditch, patriotic effort make the goals of the Civil War a reality, and to make the Union one again. -- adapted from jacket
