InfoThe governor during Reconstruction was Jonathan Worth, a former teacher, lawyer, and Quaker from the Asheboro area. In 1840, he was elected to the State Senate and served as chairman of a joint committee on education. Worth did not agree with the Confederate administration nor with the peace movement.

State Treasurer (C-NC) 1862-65

Governor (C-NC) 1865-68. One of his major interests upon assuming office was to restore North Carolina to the Union, an action favored by the legislature. Even though Governor Worth was re-elected to office in 1866, his hope of returning the state to the Union did not succeed. A new state constitution drafted by a convention was defeated and North Carolina's civil government became provisional by decree from Congress. Governor Worth refused to run for re-election on the Democratic ticket in the election of 1868. He died the following year. He is buried in historic Oakwood Cemetery (Raleigh, NC).
