    Excerpt from History of the Impeachment of Andrew Johnson, President of the United States

    Little is now known to the general public of the history of the at tempt to remove President Andrew Johnson in 1868, on his impeach ment by the House of Representatives and trial by the Senate for alleged high crimes and misdemeanors in office. Or of the causes that led to it. Yet it was one of the most important and critical events. Involving possibly the gravest consequences, in the entire history of the country.

    The constitutional power to impeach and remove the President had lain dormant since the organization of the Government, and apparent, ly had never been thought of as a means for the satisfaction of politi cal enmities or for the punishment of alleged executive misdemeanors even in the many heated controversies between the President and ('ou gress that had theretofore arisen. Nor would any attempt at impeach ment have been made at that time but for the great numerical dispar ity then existing between the respective representatives in Congress of the two political parties of the country.

    One-half the members of that Congress. Both House and Senate, are now dead. And with them have also gone substantially the same pro portion of the people at large. But many of the actors therein who have passed away, lived long enough to see, and were candid enough to ad mit, that the failure of the impeachment had brought no harm to the country, while the general judgment practically of all has come to be that a grave and threatening danger was thereby averted.
