A museum and shrine to a Civil War politician. All the local school children are brought here to see the pioneer cabins and homestead.

But... what they don't tell you is that he was impeached by 2/3 of the NC house of representatives and removed from office by President Johnson and he was the NC Grand Dragon of the KKK.

Local hero.

My pa told me that our umptenth granddad was the governor of North Carolina. This was 30 some years ago so I went to my h.s. library and checked it out...Low and behold theres Zebulon. (our last name is Vance) the thing the book I found all this in, said he was "kludd the dragon" in the kkk. Not the grand wizard as stated in the previous post.
