Andrew Johnson (1808-1875)

Andrew Johnson became the seventeenth President of the United States after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. He was the first president to be impeached. Johnson had worked his way up from assemblyman to U.S. congressman, and eventually governor of Tennessee and U.S. senator. He was the only senator from a seceding state to remain in Washington to back the Union, which is why Lincoln chose him as vice president. Johnson is in the same chair in which Lincoln was photographed five years earlier.
