Title

Testimony of Jesse Gant in Holden's impeachment trial, 1871

Description

Jesse Gant was a political figure for forty years in both the counties of Alamance and Orange, North Carolina. The Board of Managers attempted to examine many respectable and well known men from the counties in question during the trial, and Mr. Gant fit that mold. Having been a constable, sheriff, and commissioner throughout his tenure of serving Alamance, he was appointed by provisional Governor Holden as magistrate of the court. His testimony revolves around the court proceedings in Alamance County during this era of violence and points out that nothing was reported of any crimes being committed against the government.
