The Impeachment results of 1868 as they were reported in Harpers Monthly

Here you can follow what the reader of 1868 was reading when it came to the results and news of President Johnson's Impeachment hearing. Of course the news was known that he was found not guilty, but this is from Harper's Monthly Magazine. The magazine of course went into more detail and I thought it would be nice to look at some history when it was indeed news.
