Impeachment News About President Andrew Johnson

November 24, 2019

While reading The New York Times Saturday I came across this item, and it made me smile as the history leaps off the page.

No byline. Strong lede. Hyphen still intact–note that New-York is hyphenated as a compound modifier of Times.  An 1868 special dispatch on impeachment. “If yesterday was a day of excitement, to-day has been its very opposite in the calm and quietude that has reigned everywhere.”

If you save the photo and then from using your pictures program to zoom into the text there is much of this page that can be read.
