Democracy’s Denial: Revolutions in Wilmington (1898 and after): The only coup d’etat in U.S. history—and its long aftermath: as told by the principal participants, read by their direct descendants; and transformed in popular culture.

  2. Centuries Turning: propaganda, Wilmington grapples with another riot, and reconciliation
