9781482092455: The Clansman

“THE CLANSMAN” is the second book of a series of historical novels planned on the Race Conflict. “The Leopard’s Spots” was the statement in historical outline of the conditions from the enfranchisement of the negro to his disfranchisement. “The Clansman” develops the true story of the “Ku Klux Klan Conspiracy,” which overturned the Reconstruction régime. The organization was governed by the Grand Wizard Commander-in-Chief, who lived at Memphis, Tennessee. The Grand Dragon commanded a State, the Grand Titan a Congressional District, the Grand Giant a County, and the Grand Cyclops a Township Den. The twelve volumes of Government reports on the famous Klan refer chiefly to events which occurred after 1870, the date of its dissolution.

From the Back Cover:

"The president is shot! He has killed the president!"
Originally published in 1905, The Clansman inspired D. W. Griffith's classic film, The Birth of a Nation. It is the second in a series of three historical novels that Thomas Dixon, Jr., wrote about the aftermath of the American Civil War. The first and third volumes of this "Trilogy of Reconstruction," The Leopard's Spots and The Traitor, are also available from Pelican.
Beginning with Lee's surrender and the subsequent assassination of Abraham Lincoln, The Clansman describes the anxiety and confusion of the years immediately after the South's defeat. Between 1865 and 1870, the whole nation struggled with questions of justice and revenge, forgiveness and reparation. With 350,000 Southern soldiers dead, ensuring the welfare of their widows and orphans, as well as the rest of the population, was of paramount concern. Faced with a total breakdown of law and order, some Southern leaders called upon the spirits of their ancestors, the clansmen of Old Scotland. The Ku Klux Klan was conceived as an "Invisible Empire" pledged to protect the people of the South. This is its story.
This edition is illustrated with scenes from The Birth of a Nation and features a new foreword by James P. Cantrell, author of Celtic Southern Literature, also published by Pelican.

About the Author:

Thomas Dixon, Jr., was born in rural North Carolina during the Civil War. Educated at Wake Forest and Johns Hopkins Universities, Dixon was, among other things, a novelist, preacher, lecturer, lawyer, and state legislator. During his lifetime, he published twenty-two novels and several essays, plays, and sermons. Dixon's "Trilogy of Reconstruction" also included The Traitor and The Clansman and was made into D. W. Griffith's cinema masterpiece, Birth of a Nation. He has been named among both the most dated and most contemporary of Southern writers.
