Unusual carte de visite of President Andrew Johnson while in office, 1866, on "ANDREW JOHNSON, Pres't U.S." card, and bearing backmark of Alexander Gardner. Clipped corners, else fine condition. Andrew Johnson (1808- 1875) was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson assumed the presidency as he was Vice President of the United States at the time of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. A Democrat who ran with Lincoln on the National Union ticket, Johnson came to office as the Civil War concluded. The new president favored quick restoration of the seceded states to the Union. His plans did not give protection to the former slaves, and he came into conflict with the Republican-dominated Congress, culminating in his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He was acquitted in the Senate by one vote.
