ANDREW JOHNSON. Partly Printed Warrant signed: "Andrew Johnson" as President, 1p, 6½x5½. Washington, 1867 July 10. In part: "I hereby authorize and direct the Secretary of State [William H. Seward] to affix the Seal of the United States to a Warrant for the unconditional pardon of Josiah M. Sargent...." Article II Section 2 of the United States Constitution gives the President the "power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States". Prisoners must wait at least five years after conviction to apply for a pardon, which clears a person's name. Since a presidential pardon is an official U.S. government document, the President granting the pardon must order the Secretary of State to affix the seal of the U.S. to it. In his three years 323 days as President, Andrew Johnson issued 654 pardons, more than any of his predecessors. James Monroe had held the record with 419 pardons in eight years. Horizontal fold touches signature. Slightly smudged at second "o" of Johnson. Slightly creased and soiled. Overall, fine condition.
