    Ticket to the Impeachment of President Andrew Johnson , 5.0" x 3.0", Washington, D.C., May 18, 1868. Signed in print by George T. Brown, Sergeant-at-Arms, and printed on heavy pink stock, this ticket is for admission to the Senate Gallery during the Impeachment proceedings against President Andrew Johnson. The Southern-born Johnson was brought to trial by a Congress dominated by the "radical" elements of the Republican Party under the leadership of former abolitionist Senators such as Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumner. Johnson's policies of returning self-rule to the defeated South were rightly seen as a threat to the emerging civil rights of the former slave population. A series of political maneuvers over a three-year period led to the famous trial in which the President was surprisingly acquitted. This ticket has been mounted to a larger card and typically suffers some fading. Fine condition.
