Rated 5 out of 5 by from This video discusses a critical period in US history that I did not know about. My school texts omitted it completely. The video was very enlightening, well documented. I will watch it more than once. There was more information than I could catch in one sitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going to the Devil: The Impeachment of 1868 I enjoyed this course very much. I love American History and this incident is something I knew little about. Seeing the pictures of the participants and hearing their words spoked by VO actors was awesome. Great course!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too many anecdotes It was good overall, but too many anecdotes were used, making it appear to be biased in some respects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The evil of Partisan Politics This is a very good overview of a period of US history not often discussed in the classroom. In JFK's 1956 'Profiles in Courage', Edmund G. Ross (senator from Missouri) is applauded for his acquittal vote in the trial of Andrew Johnson. Fast forward to the 21st century and this documentary-type lecture and we get a more complicated view of this senator...one not entirely favorable. Is this revisionism? Another striking thing about this lecture is the apparent reference to former President Trump (though never mentioned directly). The portrayal of Andrew Johnson as an unashamed demagogue and populist , even giving him a somewhat sinister voice, presents a somewhat biased view of him and his anti-black legislation. Since I am a fan of neither Johnson nor Trump, I'm not bothered by this bias...but recognize that that bias exists. It is interesting that, no matter how bad Johnson's actions were, his impeachment trial ended in acquittal...much the same as Trump's second trial. How did Johnson garner this senatorial support (partisan politics...Ross was not alone in his vote) when he was so obviously guilty? How did he remain in politics so long after he left the presidency? Will history repeat itself with the career of Donald J Trump? Recommended...I dinged it one star because of the bias.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Opening I am a history buff, but I did not know the details of who Andrew Johnson was. His dependence on emotion and his exclusion of reason in decision making are uncannily similar to Trump. I wish our society was better at learning from history.
