#17 Andrew Johnson (1865-1869)

The seventeenth president of the United States: Andrew Johnson.

After Lincoln was assassinated Johnson became president of the United States. Unfortunately during his presidency civil rights for black people took a step backward and he allowed many of the racist policies of the south to continue.

I recently saw an article where Johnson was named as the worst president in U.S. history.  Even worse than Buchanan, which I find surprising.
