President Johnson was impeached by the House of Representatives in February 1868, but was acquitted at his Senate trial in May of the same year. He continued in office for a further nine months, retiring from the White House when his term expired in march 1869, after making an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic party's endorsement in 1868. His home state of Tennessee also rejected him for a seat in the US Senate in 1868, and for a seat in the House of Representatives in 1872.

In 1874, Johnson was finally elected US Senator from Tennessee on the Democratic ticket, and took office in March of 1875. He died of a stroke on July 31, 1875.
