JOHN W. JOHNSTON
Signed autograph letter as US Senator (1873)
Autograph Letter signed: "John W. Johnston", 1 page, 5x8. Arlington, Virginia, 1873 May 2. To Mr. McCullough, in full: "Enclosed I have the honor to send you the autograph denied [?]. I was a member of the Senate of Virginia from 1846-7 & 1847-8. Yours truly." John Johnston (1818-1889), a Democrat, served in the pre-Civil War Virginia legislature, as he has noted. A Superior Court judge (1869-1870), he represented Virginia in the US Senate (1870-1873). As the first supporter of the Confederacy to return to the Senate after the war, Johnston was caught up in the controversy over creating a national military cemetery in Arlington. While he was reluctant to advocate exhuming and reburying valiant soldiers, he believed that land taken from the former estate of Robert E. Lee was not the proper site for such a cemetery. Normal mailing folds. Paper residue (previous mounting) on verso (no show-through). Otherwise, fine condition.
