Andrew Johnson - Democrat Vice President which Abraham Lincoln -
Republican, Chose as his running mate on the same ticket. A R and a D
on the same ticket where the R gets assassinated and then the D gets
impeached, but survived it by one vote.
Impeachment History:
Andrew Johnson, the seventeenth President of the United States, held
office from 1865 to 1869, but his term was almost shorter as he became
the first American President to be impeached.
In 1868 the House of Representatives impeached Andrew Johnson due to
his views on the south and the Confederates, but he was acquitted by a
single vote.
The only other President to be impeached was Bill Clinton on December
19 1998 by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury.
Bill Clinton was also acquitted, there have not been any successful
impeachments of American Presidents to this date.
Richard Nixon was facing imminent impeachment but resigned before the
proceedings took place.

Andrew Johnson
