Overview

Andrew Johnson: A Biography by Hans L. Trefousse

A definitive life of the flawed man who succeeded to the American presidency after Lincoln's assassination.
Politically shrewd but fatally unable to adapt to new political realities, Andrew Johnson presided, disastrously, over the tumultuous first years of Reconstruction. In this provocative account, Hans Trefousse gives us "a brilliant, compassionate portrait of a dynamic era of social change and national healing, and of the tragic failure of an American leader" (Library Journal).

I really enjoyed this book and I thought it was well written. I normally select my presidential books from the American Presidential Series. However, I selected this book from a previous recommendation from a reader and thought this to be a great book. Not too overbearing with information and it kept me wanting to read on. Made clear some issues that Team of Rivals failed address.
