The Great Courses is proud to present Going to the Devil: The Impeachment of 1868 This first-time-ever original narrative documentary is a unique and entertaining retelling of the turbulent yet fascinating events leading up to and through the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. You’ll hear “first-hand” from the characters themselves—including Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, and others who were involved—as you get an in-depth and evenhanded view of an often-overlooked period in American history. And these characters are probably unlike anyone you have encountered. With back-stabbings, acts of violence, twists and turns, and a cult of personalities, the factual history of this case unfolds like a fictional story.
