    Description

    Andrew Johnson: Impeachment Tickets. The impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson was the big event of 1868. It was covered extensively in the newspapers and attended by throngs of people. One of those in attendance was General Gilman Marston. We offer the "souvenirs" he retained from this historic event; namely, two "standard" tickets in orange and purple (3.5" x 3"), a larger, inscribed ticket (5" x 3") admitting Marston to the U. S. Senate chambers for the course of the Impeachment Trial, and the original envelope that the tickets were sent in. We also include an 1842 letter written to Marston around the time he graduated from Harvard law school dealing with Whig politics and personal matters. The larger ticket is quite rare.
