Night-Time View, Home of Andrew Johnson, Greeneville, Tenn.

This beautiful unsent postcard says on the back-

Andrew Johnson was born in 1808 in North Carolina and died in 1875 in Carter County, Tenn., where he had gone to visit a daughter.  His body was removed to his home at Greeneville and, because of his oft repeated request, was wrapped in the flag of his country for burial.  His burial plot and about 15 acres surrounding it was aquired by the United States Government and is now known as the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery.  He was the 17th president of the U.S.A.
