Johnson, Andrew. (1808-1875).17th President of the United States (1865-1869). Partly printed DS as President, 1p, vellum, 19¾" x 15¾", 1865 May 1. Fine; normal folds and light toning. Two weeks after the assassination of President Lincoln, Andrew Johnson appoints "Nathan A.M. Dudley of the U.S. Volunteers…Brigadier General By Brevet…." Countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. The light blue seal is intact. It is interesting to note that the docket at top left was written on April 1, 1865, and the signature of Asst. Adjt. Gen. E.D. Townsend is signed in a different color ink from the rest of the docket.Anything authentically signed by Johnson is scarce because he was the first president to use a stamped signature because of his broken arm. The stamped signatures are often sold as original signatures.Many f these military commissions had been prepared for the signature of Abraham Lincoln.

Nathan Augustus Munroe Dudley was a Union officer from Massachusetts. He was Captain of the 10th U.S. Infantry (7 May 1861) and Colonel of the 30th Mass (1 Mar. 1862). He was mustered out of the U.S. Volunteers in February 1865. He received brevets for Baton Rouge, and Pt. Hudson, Louisiana.
