    Description

    1868 President Andrew Johnson Impeachment Ticket printed in brown ink on a yellow 3.5" x 3" card by Philp & Solomons of Washington, D.C. It was issued for the proceedings of May 7, 1868. In very good condition save for a small paper loss at the left side. Johnson was the first and only president to be impeached, until Bill Clinton in 1998. Each was acquitted.

    Also included in this lot is a handsome embossed ticket to "Young America's May Ball" held Tuesday, May 1, 1855 at Military Hall (no city given). It pictures an eagle and other patriotic devices: lady liberty, and a gentleman in military uniform. This was possibly a traditional May Day celebration. Fine condition and appearance, interesting item.
