Andrew Johnson (1808-1875)

Andrew Johnson was a Southern Democrat. He had been chosen by Lincoln as vice president in 1864 because he alone of all Southern senators from seceding states had remained loyal to the Union. But Johnson proceeded to alienate almost everyone in Congress when he decided to bring about the "restoration" of the Union with only the mildest of requirements for the defeated Confederate states. Johnson became the seventeenth president after Lincoln was assassinated, on April 15, 1865, and remained in office until the end of the term, in 1869.
