Scottsdale Civil War Roundtable Presents: “The Impeachment of Andrew Johnson”
On February 18, “The Impeachment of Andrew Johnson” will be the subject of this month’s meeting of the Scottsdale Civil War Roundtable. David Stewart is author of the highly praised book, Impeached: The Trial of President Andrew Johnson and the Fight for Lincoln's Legacy. Mr Stewart brings to the subject meticulous and groundbreaking research along with his experience as a lawyer in defending a federal judge at a Senate impeachment trial.
His talk traces the explosive trial of President Johnson to its roots in the social and political revolutions that rocked the South with the end of slavery and the Civil War and reveals new information on the machinations surrounding his Senate trial.
Mr Stewart is the author of several other books, including The Summer of 1787 on the Constitutional Convention, American Emperor on the trial of Aaron Burr, as well as several novels of historical fiction. He graduated from Yale Law School, was a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell, and a partner in the law firm of Ropes & Gray.
The Scottsdale Civil War Roundtable meets the third Tuesday of every month at 5:30 pm (except July, July & August) at the Scottsdale Civil Center Library Auditorium, 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd, Scottsdale. Speakers are comprised of well-known Civil War experts from around the country. The group supports battlefield preservation. All are welcome to attend.
