    Description

    Andrew Johnson Partly Printed Document Signed as president, one page, 8" x 10", Washington, 1 March 1869. "I hereby authorize and direct the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to a warrant for the pardon of Samuel B. Arnold dated this day." With less than four days left in his Presidency, Johnson pardoned all of the surviving Lincoln conspiracy convicts who had served their time at Fort Jefferson on Dry Tortugas island in Florida. Arnold lived to write a self-justifying memoir of his place in the conspiracy, which also expressed great bitterness at his imprisonment. Fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
