This article looks at the role that violence against blacks in the American South in the late 19th century and in South Africa in the early 20th century had in maintaining white supremacy in both regions. Particular attention is given to the Red Shirts, vigilantes in eastern North Carolina, and their acts of political terror during the 1898 election, as well as the use of violence by white Afrikaners in South Africa during the 1914 rebellion against official military and foreign policies of the government.
