* The KKK was formed in Pulaski, Tennesse by six confederate war veterans, also Nathan Bedford Forrest. Their goal was to find and kill any African American that was a Republican or any black person at all. This is what scared the black people of the comnities.They dressed as they did (they wore a white robe, white pointed hat, and mask) because they felt they needed to be disguesed. But the KKK soon feel out and it wasn't heard from again ( this happened in 1870) until around the mid 1920's when the movie "The Birth of a Nation" came out and was largly credited for the revival of the KKK. During this time was when the KKK had the most power and members, around 4-5 million, and largly influenced many things of this time period.
