Trivia Question: What VP of Abraham Lincoln was the first man to ascend to the presidency due to assassination?
Answer: Andrew Johnson
Johnson was Lincoln’s second vice president. As one of the only southern politicians to not join the Confederacy, Lincoln hoped having Johnson around would help convince southerners to surrender peacefully. An assassin was also sent to kill Johnson on the same night that Lincoln was killed. However, that assassin ended up getting too drunk to accomplish his macabre goal.
