First Pardoned President ?

A point of presidential trivia: John Tyler (aka "the accidental president"), in all likelihood, would have benefited from one of the Lincoln / Johnson post-War amnesties ... had he not had the poor taste to die first. Tyler left the presidency in 1841, voted for Virginia's secession from the Union and went on to become elected as a Confederate congressman in 1862.
