Johnson became President when JFK was shot in Dallas. During his time as President he signed the Civil Rights Act of 1965, escalated the war in Vietnam, got the 1964 war on Poverty program enacted, got federal aid to elementary and secondary schools, passed a more liberal immigration law, created the National Endowment of the Arts, and passed the federal voting act.
