    Description

    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. He returned to the U.S. Senate in 1875, the only former U.S. President to serve in the upper house, from March 4, 1875, until his death on July 31, 1875. 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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
