Andrew Johnson and Family


This silhouette created by local artist, Joe Kilday, on the side of a Summer Street building depicts the arrival of youthful future President Andrew Johnson leading a blind pony which pulled a small wagon. The young girl, Eliza McCardle, is shown pointing to young Johnson as she tells her friends that he is the one she will marry.
