Andrew Johnson Signature "Andrew Johnson" as U.S. Senator, 4.75" x 1" (visible). Cut from paper wrapper noted to have enclosed a "Public Document." Lightly toned with minor creases. Democrat Andrew Johnson represented Tennessee in the U.S. Senate from October 8, 1857, to March 4, 1862, when he resigned, having been appointed by Pres. Abraham Lincoln as Brigadier General in the Volunteer force and Military Governor of Tennessee. Johnson was elected Vice President with Lincoln on the National Union (Republican) Party ticket in 1864 and became President when Lincoln was assassinated in 1865. In 1868, President Johnson was impeached but was found not guilty by one vote short of the two-thirds necessary for removal.

Matted with a color bust portrait of Johnson and a 6.75" x 8.5" (visible) printed presidential proclamation of June 24, 1865, in which Pres. Johnson removed "restrictions on trade west of the Mississippi River." Framed under glass to 15.25" x 12.25". In apparent fine condition.
