"President Johnson and His Enemies," Daily Union and American (Nashville, TN), March 28, 1866

Nashville, Tennessee, 1864, view from the Capitol
In an editorial reprinted from the Richmond Dispatch, the Nashville Daily Union describes the process by which President Johnson may be removed from office. Citing the National Intelligencer's claims that a deliberate plot is underway, the writer doubts whether the radicals in Congress have the capability either of finding charges against Johnson, or reaching the goal of removal even if they did. The idea of a conspiracy to remove the President, however, is clearly finding voice in Democratic circles. (By John Osborne)
