Champion of Public Education in Tennessee
"Can there be nothing done to advance the great cause of education?"
Governor Andrew Johnson, 1853
Throughout his legislative and gubernatorial careers, Andrew Johnson advocated appropriation of public money for common schools for both boys and girls. As governor, he proposed a school tax which was passed by the legislature in February 1854. As president, he gave personal land for a church and freedmen's school in Greeneville. On March 2, 1867, he signed a bill establishing Howard University, an African-American institution of higher learning in Washington, D. C.
