    Conquest The day they landed was the most horrible day I have ever been forced to live through. *     *     * The Soviet Union had begun to regroup.

    Congress’s Presidential Conquest “I am sworn to uphold the Constitution as Andy Johnson understands it and interprets it.” This is a simple quote from a simple man. 17th President of the United States, Andrew Johnson, and Congress had a sharp conflict about the way the South should be “re-constructed” in the wake of the just finished Civil War.
