Impeachment of Andrew Johnson
This storyboard does not have a description.
Hello, I am Andrew Johnson. I am now president of the U.S because lincoln was shot and killed.
I began to notice that the congress didn't like me very much so I Issued the Proclimation of Amnesty on a day that they were not in session.
I vetoed a bill that would help funds for reconstruction and the congress got really upset and eventually ended up overriding my veto.
I wrote a speech and accused some individual congressmen of being disloyal. By this point, they were very agitated.
I also vetoed the Civil Rights bill which would have allowed all persons born in the US to have citizenship despite their past. The Congress also overrided this veto.
After I vetoed a couple more acts that were quickly overridden by Congress, I was eventually impeached.
