The Impeachment of Governor William Holden

Governor William Holden was elected as Governor of North Carolina in 1868, seeing his term come to an end in 1871 after the House of Representatives issue eight different charges of impeachment against the Governor.  Holden would be convicted on six of these charges, being acquitted of the two charges pertaining to his issuance of the Counties of Alamance and Caswell in states of insurrection.
