The Ku Klux Klan is believed to have been started in 1866. It was little known and had and indistinct political program before 1867. By 1868, the Ku Kluxers were regularly making it into the newspapers. Following the lead of the thread on Newspaper coverage of "Black Confederates", I thought it would be interesting to start a thread on newspaper coverage of Ku Klux Klan in 1868. Please add any newspaper coverage you come across for 1868. Also, if you have additional thoughts on the 1868 Klan amplifying the primary sources, please make them known.
