Well I actualy agree with you, however I could not resist debating someone whos entire argument and opening statment is Andrew Johnson Was by far the worst president ever...
I'll give hime this though he came to America's leasership at a hard time in our history putting a country back together after a civil war is never easy and nobody would have done a perfect job. He did his best despite his poor leadership skills and the post war recustruction could have taken much longer and been much different without him.
He allowed the Southern states to replace slavery with "Black Codes", which furthered the discrimination against the former slaves by reaffirming the notion that they were inferior and had essentially no civil rights. He was against them when the north had a whole war just to free the slaves. With reconstruction, he barley did anything when the U.S needed him the most, He also tried to pass a law that would send money to help reform the confederacy.
Well, my oppaent must have no argument, as she forfeited, but here are some more aruments for Johnson.He failed, and failed utterly; failed so miserably that, in the last weeks of his Administration, he could only revenge himself by absurd attempts wantonly to vex his successor. He nominated to the Senate for consul to Havana a soldier who was conspicuously the enemy of General Grant, and for minister to Chile, General Grant's brother-in-law and friend. Mr. Johnson's Administration has had, however, the good result of proving the character of the people. At every moment of his evil career it has been evident that the country condemned him; and undoubtedly it anticipated his removal when he was impeached. There verdict against him failed of the necessary two-thirds vote
