Perhaps somebody can provide some enlightenment regarding this modern Klan--  
as Klan like organizations were formed and were active throughout the 
Reconstruction period, the defeat of Reconstruction, and afterwards, in the 
1890s, 1900s in the process of reindenturing black labor, and attempting to 
intimidate those who were called as witnesses by the special prosecutors 
sent into Alabama, Georgia, Florida in the early years of the 20th century 
to investigate, and attempt to end this indenturing.

Certainly lynchings existed before, and apart from the KKK.  Lynchings were 
public events, not sequestered terror.   Nobody wore a bedsheet.  But how 
does the modern Klan of 1916 differ from the "old" Klans?
