Andrew Johnson was served as the 17th President of the United States. Johnson presided over the rebuilding era of the United States in the four years after the American Civil War. He became the mainly prominent War Democrat from the South and supported Lincoln's military policies through the American Civil War of 1861–1865. In 1862, Lincoln selected Johnson military governor of occupied Tennessee. His conciliatory policies towards the South, his rush to reincorporate the former Confederate states back into the union, and his vetoes of civil rights bills embroiled him in a bitter argument with Radical Republicans. He did not identify with the two main parties although he did try for the Democratic nomination in 1868 and so while President he attempted to make a party of loyalists under the National Union label.
