Ticket to admit the bearer to a gallery supporting the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. 3 1/2" x 2 3/4". Yellow. Andrew Johnson’s impeachment was possibly the most controversial issue for the country during Reconstruction. Due mainly because of Johnson’s violation of the Tenure of Office Act, the impeachment stacked “Radical Republicans” against Johnson’s far more moderate approach. The Tenure of Office Act prevented the President to remove certain people from office, most notably the Secretary of War. When Johnson replaced Edwin M. Stanton and replaced him with Ulysses S. Grant, the impeachment began to gain steam. Johnson also vetoed many of the civil rights acts that were passed through congress following the Civil War, which angered most of the country. Johnson survived the impeachment by one single vote. The piece is dated May 6, 1868 and is signed by in print by George T. Brown. He served as Senate Sergeant at Arms from 1861-1869. He is famous for his signature being on the Senate chamber gallery passes like this one. Excellent condition.
