In 1865, American Civil War has ended, but the racial war has just started a new chapter. Although the nation is once again unified, but the difference between racial perspective hasn’t been changed until many years later. The lost of war did not make southerners give up their believe in slavery. Many veterans of Confederate Army have organized and committed brutal crimes against white and racial republicans. Although Ku Klux Klan is organized originally at local area, many other groups across the southern states have adopted the name. The image above shows three members of Ku Klux Klan under arrest at Tishomingo county, Mississippi on September 1871 for attempt murdering a family. In 1870, Government passed Force Act to fight the crimes and place soldiers to protect racial republicans and peoples.
This picture above shows a gathering of KKK members Gainesville, Florida at December 31, 1922. With Government’s involvement, the scale of Ku Klux Klan gets smaller as more members of KKK is prosecuted under the law. In 1920s, KKK re-emerges when racial conflicts is incorporated with religious conflicts. The member of KKK become more organized and openly practiced. The Klan fades away at 1940s because of criminal acts committed by the head of the organizers.
