Impeached! The Rise and Fall of Andrew Johnson

Here’s Supervisory Ranger Angie Atkinson giving a great presentation on Andrew Johnson in Reconstruction and the events leading to his impeachment. Angie’s dedication to doing a great job, typical of NPS rangers, is evident in this video.

The video’s description reads, “Andrew Johnson rose from a humble Tennessee tailor to assume the mantle of the Presidency following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. His handling of the first years of Reconstruction nearly resulted in his impeachment. Join Supervisory Ranger Angie Atkinson for a look at the rise and fall of this controversial figure.”
