* All founders were veterens of the confederate army.
* There were and are many ceremonies performed within the Klan.
* The Klan folowers call their leader the "Grand Cyclops". The traditional uniform
of the Ku Klux Klan
included a white robe
and hood. In other words, the KKK was a secret terrorest organiation intent on reastablishing the dominance of the prewar plantation asristocracy. The KKK persecuted; Christians and
Roman Catholics Jews and
Communists Those foreign to
their country and... African Americans ...Such as when Cassie and her brothers see the night riders (supporters of the KKK) come riding through their neighborhood in "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry". The Logan family felt the
