A decent collection of news articles capturing the sentiments in the South during reconstruction that lead to the Klan. It covers from the late 1800's beginnings in Tennessee up through the peek of the Klans penetration in the 1920s when they claimed 15% of eligible US citizens as members. It also covers in great detail the atrocity of lynchings and mob rule that the Klan got its power from and how that traumatized the nation.
