    Description

    Andrew Johnson Impeachment Roster Issued by Senate Chamber. One page, 6.5" x 7.5", [Washington, D.C.]; circa May 1868. A printed roster from the Fortieth Congress U.S. Second Session, Senate Chamber, which was held on May 16 and May 26, 1868, recording the guilty and not guilty votes made by the Senate members in the trial against Andrew Johnson, "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1868 by James D. McBride in the Clerks Office of the District Court for the District of Columbia."

    Johnson became president following the death of Abraham Lincoln and drew the wrath of the Radical Republicans with his lenient policies toward the South. The impeachment trial for Andrew Johnson began on March 13, 1868, and lasted nearly three months, ending on May 26. Thirty-five senators voted "guilty" while nineteen senators voted "not guilty", falling short by just one vote of the two-thirds majority required under the Constitution.

    Condition: Flattened folds, with minor creasing at the corners. The edges are slightly uneven, and the bottom margin appears to have been trimmed. Light soiling throughout, else very good.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
