RE: Franklin W. Smith and the U. S. Navy
Just curious - as this was a military trial did Lincoln have authority to do this as Commander-in-Chief? Or would this come under his power to grant pardons? Therefore, in theory, if Andrew Johnson had wanted to create a firestorm, did he have the legal authority to annul the 8 guilty verdicts in the conspiracy trial?
