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
150 Florida

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)
416
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
5th Klan
1981 Lynching Michael Donald
Klan member electrocuted
Total 1937
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

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.

User Avatar

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 =)

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.

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.

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.

The Ku Klux Klan did not want newly freed Blacks to vote because they wanted to intimidate them and keep them from positions of power. The Ku Klux Klan used many methods of terror and harassment to intimidate Blacks, but in 1870 the Enforcement Acts were enacted to prevent this.

The 1st Klan had 550,000 members, 2nd klan ranged between 3 to 6 million (1920 - 1925). The 3rd Klan probably has over 5000 nationwide.
