Portrait Of The Simmons Brothers

William Joseph Simmons - was a former preacher from Georgia who, in 1915, founded the second Ku Klux Klan after the collapse of the original Klan following the end of Reconstruction. He formed the Klan as a fraternal organization dedicated to defending American values. Unfortunately, his version of American “values” was odious. The new Klan added Catholics, Jews, and immigrants to its list of enemies.
