    David Rice Atchison Autograph Document Signed "Atchison Attorney for plaintiff," one page, 7.75" x 12.5". Lafayette Circuit, (Missouri), June 25, 1833. David Rice Atchison represented Missouri in the U.S. Senate from 1841-1855, serving as President Pro Tempore of the Senate from 1846-1850, 1852-1854. Many historians contend that Atchison on March 4, 1849 was President of the United States. Since President Polk's and Vice President Dallas' terms ended on a Saturday and President-elect Taylor and Vice President-elect Fillmore were not sworn in until Monday, historians reason that Atchison was President for one day, Sunday, March 4, 1849. Horizontal folds. Shaded at folds. Lightly stained. Lightly nicked edges. Very slight shading at signature. Overall, fine condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
