President Andrew Johnson's Term
Social Studies Class
When Senate was out of session, President Johnson passes his Proclamation of amnesty.
Proclamation of Amnesty This is my reconstruction plan for the United States.
Today is George Washington's birthday. As of such I have decided to honer his memory and call out the dis-unionists in congress by name.
Because the Radical Republicans outnumber Johnson's supporters 2 to one, they can pass any bill they want, which they did. Often.
The Tenure of Office Act is passed by the Senate despite Andrew Johnson vetoing it.
Tenure of Office
The president is not allowed to dismiss any government official without approval from the senate. (This protects Secretary of War, Edward Stanton. A supporter of the Radical Republicans.)
General Ulysses S. Grant, I hereby appoint you as Secretary of War in replacement of Edwin Stanton for the remainder of the time that Congress is not in session.
I, the Representative of the House of Representatives, hereby charge you, President Andrew Johnson, with impeachment on February 24, 1868.
