David O. Stewart is an award-winning author and the former president of the Washington Independent Review of Books. He became a writer of history and historical fiction after many years as a trial and appellate lawyer. His book, Impeached: The Trial of President Andrew Johnson and the Fight for Lincoln’s Legacy grew from Stewart’s personal experience defending a Senate impeachment trial. The book explores not only the festering wounds of the Civil War, which President Johnson made worse, but also the staggering levels of corruption that ultimately kept Johnson in office after an impeachment contest that had no winners.
