A rare cabinet card photograph taken by Cronenberg of Wilmington NC circa 1890. The photograph features two unnamed individual young men posing.
An interesting fact that many people do not know is Wilmington NC is the only place in the country where a successful Coup occurred. In the year 1898, the Democrat party members in the area did not like the fact that the Republicans ran the city and organized to undo the outcome of the election using violence. During this time period, the Republican party include a lot of African Americans who were elected to office. As a matter of fact, that was the case post-civil war until around the 1960's. The Democrat party did not like being ruled by African American Republicans. The outcome of the coup was never un-done by the Federal Government, nor the state of North Carolina. It really is one of the most historic events in our nation, setting back race relations in Wilmington NC, and more broadly across the nation, for many decades after. Unfortunately, the Democrat party does not like to talk about it, nor educate Americans about what occurred and what the impacts were. Imagine if during the time African Americans were allowed to successfully govern and the impact that would have had from that time forward for real integration and participation in our nation. A True Tragedy that had far, far reaching impacts.
