Andrew Johnson Becomes President Of The United States After Abraham Lincoln's Death. "He had no views on race that could be considered unorthodox in the south."
The congress didn't like Johnson because he kept Lincoln's cabinet. Meanwhile, Johnson issues his plan for the Reconstruction, the Amnesty while congress is not in session.
3 days after vetoing a bill and one day after congress overrides the veto, Johnson gives a speech on George Washington's birthday. He called out to specific radical republicans, by name, and called them "dis-unionists,'' accusing them to be disloyal.
