Philip Gerard talked about his novel, Cape Fear Rising, about an 1898 insurrection in Wilmington, North Carolina. In the decades following the Civil War, Wilmington became destination for the middle class African American community, soon becoming the majority in the city and even holding public office. By 1898, the white minority in the city had had enough and planned a political coup d’etat.
