I'll divide the answer into several sections
Reconstruction 1st Klan (1865-1877)
1500 estimated by the Tuskegee Institute
1200 blacks 300 whites
100-200 killed in South Carolina
The rest mostly killed during black voting in Louisiana in the 1868 US Presidential Election
The Klan was also partially involved in the Colfax Massacre
Nadir 2nd Klan ( 1915 - 1944)
Klan was frequently involved in lynchings, killed mostly blacks in this era
Murdered Blacks returning from WW1
Killed Leo Frank (Jewish White)
Killed 6 blacks attempting to vote in Orange County Florida
Civil Rights 3rd Klan (1954-1968)
15 people (13 black)
These murders are well known and include, but are not limited to
1963 murder Medgar Evers
1963 16th street baptist church bombing
1964 Mississippi Burning
1965 Viola Luizo Shooting
1966 Vernon Dahmer Killing
Many of these murders were prosecuted ... in the 90s and 2000s
David Duke 4th Klan
1979 Greensboro Massacre 5 killed
1981 Lynching Michael Donald
Klan member electrocuted
Note these are only those killed. Hundreds of thousands of people were injured or intimidated by the Klan
+ Although the Klan hadn't been formed, Nathan Bedford Forrest, leader of the first Klan committed this atrocity
Fort Pillow Massacre 1864 277 blacks
No one knows the answer to that question.
there was 2 million people in the Ku Klux Klan 50 years ago but numbers quickly dwindled
The Ku Klux Klan In Prophecy has 144 pages.
The Ku Klux Klan or the KKK, Lynched and burned blacks, to "put them in there place" they are still an organization that is very racist and have hurt many people.
There is no such thing as the "Klue Klux Klan" There is a Ku Klux Klan... if that is what you are reffering to. Well, this is kind of an unintelligent question, being that the Ku Klux Klan was a real organization stated in history throughout. The fact that someone could disbelieve in the Ku Klux Klan would mean that they felt they are right where history itself is wrong. Think before you ask, please =)
Ku Klux Klan.
i do not believe they are (or where) counting, but they have killed MANY black people, that's for sure :( We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.
Many people say he was, but lots of primary sources have dis proven that. He was NOT the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan!
The first Ku Klux Klan, which ran from 1865 through the 1870s had about 550,000 members. The second Ku Klux Klan, which ran from 1915 to 1944 had about 4,000,000 member.
The Ku Klux Klan does not hate negroes. The Klan simply believes in preserving their heritage and voluntary segregation. Many negroes also believe in that.
As of 2012 the Klu Klux Klan are estimated to have between 5,000 and 8,000 members by the Southern Poverty Law Center which tracks hate groups in the United States.
7 people had made it up, who had been confederate soilders.
Many were Confederate veterans.
Researches estimate that the Ku Klux Klan today is made up of 150 chapters, including 5000 - 8000 people nationwide.
The rise of the ku klux klan and other white supremacy groups contributed to its collapse by creating the demise of its unity and instilling fear in many people.
1) Ku Klux Klan was formed. 2) Many Republicans, blacks, immigrants, white people that defended blacks, Roman Catholics and Jews were killed due to people in the KKK.
There are very few.
Pros - They reduced the homosexual population, because at least one of those men they killed were gay. Cons - They killed and terrified many blacks, yet killed less than it seems.
The First Klan had about 550,000 members during its years of operation. More than 4 million people were members of the 2nd Klan, which ended in 1946. The 3rd Klan began in 1946 and has about 10,000 members according to estimates.
Nathan Bedford Forrest, General, CSA. This rebel general is considered the founder of the Klan. Robert E.Lee did NOT found, organize, or even condone the existence of the Ku Klux Klan- though many people think he did- as the best known Confederate General. Fact is, Lee was NOt a Klansman of any stripe.
about 6000. Source: wikipedia.org
