William Woods Holden (1818–92) was the Governor of North Carolina who faced impeachment in 1871. The Ku Klux Klan was terrorizing North Carolina, riots were breaking out, and Holden feared anarchy. When his request for federal troops was not fulfilled, he called upon the militia to restore order, as well as established martial law in two counties. Despite the attempts to protect the citizens of North Carolina, the following violent retaliation against Holden's political moves led to his impeachment. This pamphlet covers the twenty-first day of the trial. Holden was posthumously pardoned in 2011.
