The Veto President ~ 17th President

I was born in North Carolina to poor and mostly illiterate parents.  

I learned to read when I met my wife, Eliza.  Before becoming president, I was a Tailor, Solider, Politician, and Statesman.  

I was the first vice president to replace an assassinated president.  

My presidency focused on Civil War reconstruction.  

Who am I?

Andrew Johnson
