Product Description:

Relying primarily on a narrative chronological approach this study examines Ku Klux Klan activities in Pennsylvania's twenty-five western-most counties where the state organization enjoyed greatest numerical strength. The work covers the period between the Klan's initial appearance in the state in 1921 and its virtual disappearance by 1928 particularly the heyday of the Invisible Empire 1923-1925. This book examines a wide variety of KKK activities but devotes special attention to the two large and deadly Klan riots in Carnegie and Lilly as well as vigilantism associated with the intolerant order. Klansmen were drawn from a pool of ordinary Pennsylvanians who were driven in part by the search for fraternity excitement and civic betterment. However their actions were also motivated by sinister darker emotions and purposes. Disdainful of the rule of law the Klan sought disorder and mayhem in pursuit of a racist nativist anti-Catholic anti-Jewish agenda.
