Lyndon Baines Johnson

Lyndon Baines Johnson was born near Stonewall, Texas on August 27, 1908. Johnson began his career as a teacher before entering politics in 1930. After serving in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, Johnson was elected to the vice presidency in late 1960. He became President on November 22, 1963 upon the assassination of John F. Kennedy, but won the presidency in his own right in the 1964 election and held that office until 1969. During his presidential tenure, Johnson was involved in several significant national and international events including the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, the signing of the Civil Rights Act, as well as the escalation of the Vietnam War. Although eligible, Johnson did not run for reelection in 1968. He died after suffering his third heart attack on January 22, 1973, and is buried at the LBJ Ranch in Stonewall.
