where did the KKK start

Report as

According to Spartacus.schoolnet: The first branch of the Ku Klux Klan was established in Pulaski, Tennessee, in May, 1866. A year later a general organization of local Klans was established in Nashville in April, 1867. Most of the leaders were former members of the Confederate Army and the first Grand Wizard was Nathan Forrest , an outstanding general during the American Civil War . During the next two years Klansmen wearing masks, white cardboard hats and draped in white sheets, tortured and killed black Americans and sympathetic whites. Immigrants , who they blamed for the election of Radical Republicans , were also targets of their hatred.
