From the proceedings:
On Monday, March 23rd, 1868, the President, by his attorneys, appeared at the bar of the Senate and made answer to the several Articles of Impeachment, as follows:

(Answer to only the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 11th Articles, are here given, as the 2nd, 3rd and 11th were the only Articles put to vote--all others being abandoned, and as the 1st Article, though never put to vote, contained practically all there was of the impeachment.)

I will post the four articles and the president's answer to each of them over the next few posts.
