This book argues that although Johnson's impeachment did not succeed in ousting him, it was a justified step. It describes the critical issues and events leading up to the impeachment and then discusses the trial itself: what the grounds were, what the different sides' motivations were and why the attempt failed.

A very in depth review of the who what and why of the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. A bit dense and certainly not written like a thriller. Comes across as well researched and scholarly. Interesting how the president sought in many ways to ignore Congress and the plans they had passed into law and how that the president was brought to heel.
