On the morning of Nov. 10, 1898, hell jolted loose in Wilmington, as it was later described.

Chaos filled the streets as a mob of armed white men swept across the city, burning The Daily Record 

In the second episode of "Unearthing 1898," host Hunter Ingram and guests look at Wilmington on Nov. 10, 1898, from sunup to sundown. How did the day of violence and fear begin and how did the agenda of white supremacy sweep across Wilmington? What actions were taken by the white residents of the city and what horrors were its Black residents forced to endure?

Joining the episode are LeRae Umfleet, the author of "A Day of Blood" and lead research of North Carolina's commission on 1898; David Zucchino, author of "Wilmington's Lie;" and Christopher Everett, director of "Wilmington on Fire."

Cape Fear Unearthed is written, edited and hosted by Hunter Ingram. Additional editing by Adam Fish.

The show is sponsored by Northchase Family Dentistry, Tidewater Heating & Air Conditioning, and Cape Fear Pharmacy.
