Der Ku Klux Klan und das Scheitern der Reconstruction in North Carolina

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Der Ku Klux Klan wurde 1866 als Geselligkeitsverein in Pulaski, Tennessee, gegründet. Nachdem der von den Republikanern kontrollierte Kongress den vormaligen Staaten der Konföderation die Radical Reconstruction auferlegte (wie sie später genannt wurde), verbreitete sich die Organisation rapide im Süden der USA. Kurz vor den Kongresswahlen 1868 hatte die Organisation 500 000 Angehörige. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war der Ku Klux Klan zur erfolgreichsten und mächtigsten Terrororganisation in der Geschichte der USA aufgestiegen.
