The Ku Klux Klan also known as just “The Klan” or “Hooded order”. This was an racist suprimistest group. This group of white men was founded in 1860.The gang extended to every southern state by 1870 and became bigger for white resistance and they hate the republican party. They didn’t like the Republican Party era policies because it aimed for establishing political and economic equality for blacks. The members soon thought of an intimidation scare tactic by dressing in all white to be seen as ghost.
Entire cities were destroyed piercing the economy; the South was particularly affected by the war. Directly after the war the Klan saw much activity trying to get Democrats in office that would not support the advancements of former slaves. Eventually by the end of the 1880’s the South seemed to be more st... ... middle of paper ... ...g around the world on a daily basis. In 1960 interracial marriage was illegal in many states and made up less than one percent of marriages. In 2010 more than eight percent of all marriages were interracial.
Soon, things spiraled out of control. The true KKK was born on a June night in 1866. A large riot broke out between black ex-soldiers and whites in Memphis, Tennessee. White policemen helped the whites in defeating the black ex-soldiers, and by the time the fight was over, there were 46 people dead, along with 70 more injured, and many schools and churches burned to the ground. Southern state legislatures soon passed laws designed to maintain black superiority.
After only being president for six weeks, Abraham Lincon declared these southern acts of succession as illegal. Lincon then requested that congress would allow him to use 500,000 soldiers to help crush the very threatening rebellion in the south. Massive sections in the south were destroyed in the process of the north attempting to regulate the south. Lands were destroyed along with social structure and economics. In 1862, Lincon began to liberate the slaves in the south.
Ku Klux Klan During the nineteenth century, black people were treated as slaves. White governments introduced many laws to control their freedom. They could not vote. They were denied access to good jobs and to worthwhile education and well into the twentieth century they suffered great poverty. People from the USA wanted to prevent them from voting and holding office.
The Klan’s first branch in the 19th century was initially organised as a social club by Confederate veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee. Their main objective was to prevent African Americans from voting, through intimidation and violence. During the next two years Klansmen wearing masks, white cardboard hats and draped in white sheets, designed to frighten superstitious blacks and to prevent identification by the occupying federal troops- whipped, tortured and killed African Americans and sympathetic whites in night time raids. Successful black businessmen were attacked and any attempt to form black protection groups such as trade unions was quickly dealt with by the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan reached its peak between 1868 and 1870.
