    “Bickett served as governor of North Carolina from 1909-1917. (David Rolfe/Journal)”

    “Bickett was governor of North Carolina from 1917-21.”

    Both dates are posted in this article the top one is under the picture. Just to let Mr. Rolfe know he was governor from 1917 to 1921. Seems the Journal is not much on fact checking.
