At the 1913 dedication of the "Silent Sam" Confederate monument at UNC-Chapel Hill, industrialist Julian S. Carr delivered a speech in which he heralded "the Anglo-Saxon race in the South" and bragged that he had "horse-whipped a negro wench until her skirts hung in shreds, because … she had publicly insulted … a Southern lady."
