  • Hello, I am Andrew Johnson, I was made VP after Lincoln had been assassinated that dreadful night, I have made some questionable decisions during my time in office, here is my story so far..
  • When I started off the reconstruction plan, I vetoed every bill that gave African American rights which seemed to have upset the Radical Republicans and Congress
  • As I vetoed more and more bills I did not want passed, congress soon gained enough power to override them which made me infuriated!
  • I also leniently let the South rejoin the Union without any compromises which again, seemed to have upset congress. They felt that the South had to agree to more oaths!
  • I have then forgiven all Southerners except the wealthy farmers and have then fired the Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton and attempted to replace him with General Ulysses S. Grant, which was the final Straw for Congress
  • After all that, I had been impeached for violating the Tenure of Office Act by Congress, I hadn't been kicked out of office yet though because the senate was in my favor.
