Impeached Governor Not Hero Of His Own Legacy?

It was in 1870 that North Carolina Gov. William Woods Holden was impeached and removed from office. He had used the state militia to quell the Ku Klux Klan. Others have begun to question that legacy, saying that he was no early champion of civil rights, but instead a political opportunist. North Carolina Public Radio's Jessica Jones has the story.
