Question: Why was President Andrew Johnson impeached and what impact did it have?

FACT/ANALYSIS: The textbook reveals that Johnson was charged with “high crimes and misdemeanors” on “eleven counts of misconduct” (452-453).  The impeachment did not bring down the president because Congress fell short of convicting him. The book states that the “dissenting Republicans felt that removing a president for defying Congress was too damaging to the constitutional system of checks and balances” (452-453). The impeachment did open the door for Ulysses S. Grant to become the next president (1). OPINION/REFLECTION: Although the book does not specifically state what charges were brought against Johnson, it seems as though Congress wanted to punish him for his anti-suffrage views. It is clear that tensions were high during this period, and that the country was still trying to grapple with all the difficulties of the post-Civil War period.
