mARK B. KELLEY Racial Violence and Destructing Reconstruction it is 1871. Klansmen descend on Red Wing, an independent community of freepersons asserting economic and social agency in postwar north Carolina. After setting fire to a church, the hooded men swarm the house of nimbus Ware, the community's leader. The Klansmen brutally beat Ware's wife Lugena while demanding the whereabouts of nimbus and his ally, the teacher and minister Eliab Hill. Eliab quickly calls out from a nearby locked cabin, after which a half dozen men rushed into the room. The foremost fell over the rolling chair which had been left near the door, and the others in turn fell over him. "What the hell!" cried one. "Here, bring the light here. What is this thing anyhow?" The light was brought, and the voice continued: "Damned if it ain't the critter's go-cart. Here kick the damn thing out--smash it up! Such things ain't made for niggers to ride on, anyhow. He won't need it any more--not after we have got through with him." "That he won't!" said another, as the invalid's chair which had first given Eliab Hill power to move himself about was kicked out of the door
