Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annette Gordon-Reed presents a biography of the 17th president of the United States, Andrew Johnson (1865-1869). A Southern Democrat who remained aligned with the Union, Johnson was Abraham Lincoln’s vice president at the start of his second term, and succeeded Lincoln following the assassination of the president. Ms. Gordon-Reed recounts President Johnson’s reticence to provide civil rights to recently freed slaves and his inability to provide leadership to a nation still recovering from the Civil War. Annette Gordon-Reed recounts the presidential tenure of Andrew Johnson at the Philadelphia Free Library and responded to questions from members of the audience. close
