JOHNSON, Andrew (1808-1875) Seventeenth President of the United States. Becoming president on Lincoln's assassination in 1865, Johnson attempted to pursue the conciliatory reconstruction policies Lincoln had envisioned but Johnson was increasingly thwarted by Radical Republican desires for revenge. The conflict finally led to an 1868 congressional impeachment of Johnson, but he survived by one vote. He left office embittered and in disgrace, but later found a measure of exoneration, and, five months before his death, regained his Senate seat. Partially printed Document Signed, 12” x 14” as governor “Andrew Johnson” being a State of Tennessee commision for John T. Newbill to the rank of Major in the Academic Staff of the Western Military Academy, October 5, 1857. The document retains the original green seal, shows minor rusting in margins, else VG.
