Abstract

The Ku Klux Klan was a major force in American political and social life throughout the better part of the nineteen-twenties. This study examines the Klan, its growth, role, and demise with respect to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It is largely the story of the Klans failure to develop successfully as it was inhibited by local political factors throughout the Commonwealth.
