Andrew Johnson National Historic Site
Welcome to the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site. This site commemorates the life and work of the seventeenth president of the United States, Andrew Johnson. Born in poverty, Johnson rose from Greeneville tailor to the nation’s highest office. His political philosophy was based upon a strict interpretation of the Constitution, a belief in states’ rights, and unshakable commitment to serve the workingman, and a conservative attitude toward government spending. Johnson’s presidency, including the impeachment and acquittal, occurred during the chaotic aftermath of the Civil War.
Four separate locations make up the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site. These include an Early Home, the Visitor Center, the Andrew Johnson Homestead, and the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery.
Map locations: 1 Early Home. 2 Visitor Center. 3 Andrew Johnson Homestead. 4 Andrew Johnson National Cemetery.
