The Trial of President Andrew Johnson and the Fight for Lincoln's Legacy

Ranked #58 in Presidents

Best-selling author David Stewart challenges the traditional version of this pivotal moment in American history. Rather than seeing Johnson as Lincoln's political heir, Stewart explains how the Tennesseean squandered Lincoln's political legacy of equality and fairness and helped force the freed slaves into a brutal form of agricultural peonage across the South.
