The Impeachers
The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation
Brenda Wineapple - 2019-05-21
Goodreads Rating
This book covers America's first presidential impeachment, telling the story of heroic citizens who attempted to remove a bigoted president who ruled like a king. The book details the divided Congress's stance on how the Union should be reunited, how white Southerners hoped to restore a pre-Civil War society without slavery and Andrew Johnson's unchecked power of executive orders. The author's research provides profound insights into the period, highlighting the extraordinary characters who brought that impeachment forward. They made a last-ditch, patriotic and constitutional effort to render the goals of the Civil War into reality and to make the Union free, fair, and whole.
