Andrew Johnson, 17th U.S. President (1808-1875)

Andrew Johnson, a Southern Democrat, was chosen by Lincoln as vice president in 1864 because Johnson was the only Southern senator who remained loyal to the Union. But after Lincoln's assassination, Johnson alienated Congress when he decided to bring about the "restoration" of the Union with only mild sanctions for the defeated Confederate states.
