Another solid and informative book in the Encyclopedia of Presidents series best suited for junior high to high school age students. Don Nardo did a nice job of clarifying why Andrew Johnson repeatedly attempted to remove Edwin Stanton, Secretary of War, from office despite the ridiculous Tenure of Office Act. This attempted removal of Stanton of course being the basis for Johnson's impeachment.

What a disconcerting time for our nation. Due not only to the hardships and hurt feelings brought on

I really enjoy using this series with my elementary aged children. It covers all the issues the government faces during the president's term. Sometimes we don't read the entire book, but all the details are there. This book followed the mistakes of Johnson, but also had grace for him - a more middle of the road view.

Recommend for: Upper Elementary and Middle School students.
