Norton Essays in American History

Paperback

Michael Les Benedict (Author, Ohio State University)

Overview | Inside the Book
 

"The definitive account of Andrew Johnson's impeachment and of the dramatic events that first put a president on trial before the Senate." - Eric Foner

This book argues that although Johnson's impeachment did not succeed in ousting him, it was a justified step. It describes the critical issues and events leading up to the impeachment and then discusses the trial itself: what the grounds were, what the different sides' motivations were and why the attempt failed.
