Legacy:  One month after Lincoln’s second inauguration, Johnson became president. This was a critical time, with the Civil War just ending. Johnson was a southerner at heart. He wanted to do everything he could to help the south and to be lenient on Confederate leaders. Northerners in Congress opposed Johnson, and Johnson in turn began to veto many of their bills. Congress felt he was abusing his powers, so the House voted to impeach him. However, he was acquitted of charges by one vote necessary for the 2/3 majority in the Senate, and he completed the remainder of his term. During Johnson's presidency, the US purchased Alaska
 
Trivia: Never attended a day of school; sold by his impoverished parents and apprenticed to a tailor at age 14; made his own clothes throughout his life; only president who knew how to quilt; first of two presidents to be impeached; only ex-president to later serve as a senator.
