Today I will be talking about my presidency, and how I changed American society.
Hello everyone! My name is Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States.
When I was just 14 years-old, I wanted to be the president of the United States, and I knew it had to come through hard work and determination.
I was born on August 27, 1908, in Stonewall, Texas where I was taught much about politics and the economy.
Leading up to my presidency, I'd been elected to all four federal positions including the House of Rep., the Senate, Vice Pres., and the President.
After the assassination of JFK, I became the president and served from 1963-1969.
Also, I strived to battle the "War on Poverty" to help millions of homeless people across the country, so our economy can expand and grow.
One of my main goals during my presidency was to expand civil rights, Medicare, as well as Medicaid.
Finally, I created the Great Society programs consisting of antipoverty programs, civil rights legislation, the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, environmental protection acts, as well as laws to help protect consumers.
Although, my biggest accomplishment was passing numerous Civil Rights Acts to benefit African-Americans.
After all my success during my presidency, I finally died on January 22, 1973, at the age of 64.
