What if I told you that even though Republican candidate for governor Catherine Templeton told Bob Jones students earlier this month that her family didn't fight in the Civil War "because we had slaves," it turns out her family actually did own quite a few slaves? Greenville News reported over the weekend that her family owned 66 slaves on an Upstate plantation, valued at nearly $1 million in today's dollars. Templeton, who has repeatedly stressed her Confederate and familial pride, told the paper that her campaign is "about the future, not about the past." Source: Greenville News
