Description

During the spring of 1868, some white Virginians established local branches of the Ku Klux Klan, which had been organized in Tennessee about two years earlier. It lasted only a few months in the state, but not before members committed acts of violence in various localities, including Williamsburg, Warrenton, and Lee and Rockbridge Counties. The KKK was revived in Virginia during the 1920s.
