  1. 1. The Klu Klux klan<br />By: Hayden Hussey <br />
  2. 2. The Klu Klux Klan<br />1st Klan 1865–1870s with 550,000<br />2nd Klan 1915–1944 with 3 to 6 million people (peaked in 1920-1925 period)<br />3rd Klan1 since 1946<br />The Klu Klux Klan started in the United States. They discriminated against African Americans, Jews, Christians, and many more people.<br />
  3. 3. Hiding Their identities<br />Klan members dressed themselves in masks and robes to hide their identity when they made their attacks.<br />Many of them were operating in small towns or rural areas where people still new the faces when they made their attacks.<br />Because men were ashamed to do the things that they do, they did things at night so people wouldn’t recognize them.<br />
  4. 4. Killings<br />The Klu Klux Klan attacked many political leaders. When they attacked African American leaders, they took the heads of some of the families and heads of church leaders and community groups because different people had different roles.<br />The clan shot and burned houses with some of the occupants still in the house.<br />In South Carolina in just 11 months, there were 197 murders and 548 cases of aggravated assaults.<br />The KKK also believed in white supremacy when they killed African Americans. <br />
  5. 5. Democratic clan<br />The Klu Klux Klan suppressed black voting. Over 2000 people were killed in Louisiana within a few weeks of the 1868 presidential election.<br />Although St. Landry Parish was supposed to have 1071 registered voters, no Republicans voted in the election.<br />The KKK killed and wounded more than 200 African American Republicans. The 200 men were chased through the woods, and 25 bodies were found half buried in the woods.<br />The KKK made people vote democratic and gave people certificates to show it.<br />
  6. 6. Resistance<br />There was some organized resistance against the Klu Klux Klan. Union Army Veterans in Blount County, Alabama organized the anti-Klu Klux Klan. They threatened the Klan with counter attacks unless they stopped whipping black unionists and burning black churches.<br />
  7. 7. The Burning Cross<br />The KKK adopted a burning Christian cross as a symbol of intimidation and power of the Klu Klux Klan.<br />
  8. 8. Why I chose this topic<br />I chose this topic because the KKK was such a bad thing in our history as a country. I wanted to learn why they were so bad and what they did to earn that reputation.<br />The Klu Klux Klan is relevant to the 1920’s because they added to the suspense. The KKK was at its peak in the 1920’s because it had many members and was very powerful. It did many things that were unjust like discriminating against African Americans, Catholics, and Jews.<br />
  9. 9. Glog Reflection<br />I liked creating a Glog for this project. I never used Glogster. I’m glad I got to use Glogster to create a project. I hope we use Glogster again. <br />
