Who Put the Klan Into Ku Klux KlanDVD
Archaeologist and historian Neil Oliver examines the links between racism today in the Deep South and the Scots who first occupied it. Hundreds of thousands of Scots emigrated to America throughout the eighteenth century after being forced off of their land. The arrival of cotton gave them the opportunity to become slave masters and wealthy plantation owners, but the Civil War left them embittered. Because of that, six Scottish-American former Confederate officers formed a fraternal society that became the oldest and most feared hate group in America: the Ku Klux Klan.
