More info on the KKK? | KKK Q & A | KKK Forum
I was very interested in reading about the Ku Klux Klan and I was wondering
if there is any other information that would be helpful to me in learning
about the KKK community. Are there any other good websites or even books
that go more in depth about this subject? I truly am interested in learning
more and I look forward to pursuing into the history of the KKK.
I'm into the same thing you are. I can tell you some stuff i know so far. To start with, The Ku klux klan is a aecret organization. Its been here for 131 years. Here's how it began. After the Civil war, life was very depressing. 6 Civil War vets AKA The Jolly 6, wanted to form a social fraternity in attempt to put some joy back in post war life. They would help widows and children by giving them food and goods. They would also don spookey costumes and play jokes on the populants of a specific area.
The 1st klan did not use the iconic wizard outfit seen today. The 1st klan made their own. The costume materials included Burlap bags, Colored rags, Cloth pieces, And Bed sheets. The klansmen cut eyeholes in the bags to form a hood. The klansmen would wear these costumes to entertain the crowds. However, Some people were supersticious. Most of them black. They thought these klansmen were actually ghosts. So it scared them.
THE 2ND KLAN
William J. Simmons sold the KKK as a very large freternal order for white Christian prodistents. It was very patriotic. It praised 100% americanism. However, They added Catholic sand Jews as their enimies
