Breaking out of Abraham Lincoln’s shadow would’ve been tough for anybody, much less a Southern Democrat who struggled with his own sense of racism. Regardless, Andrew Jackson now had the job and had to deal with Civil War Reconstruction – no easy task. It didn’t take long for this stubborn accidental President to make a lot of political enemies, but one stands out above the rest – activist Frederick Douglass. And even though they only met once, their worlds would collide over and over with their own beliefs of what should be done, and how quickly! The combative presidency of Andy Johnson is on this episode of American POTUS!
