Even though organized violence in North Carolina had already diminished by 1872, the army still had to deal with moonshiners and election-related disturbances. The “first conflict between soldiers and citizens” since the soldier's initial arrival occurred during a Democratic political rally in which a drunken fight broke out at Lincolnton. In most North Carolina communities, election day proved to be relatively quiet in spite of how some witnessed some of the controversies initiated by the Ku Klux Klan. After the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870 that was moved to protect the voting rights of the southern blacks, northern Republicans perceived their Reconstruction to be completed.
