KKK “White Cap” Flyer

DATE
Year: 1889

Newspaper’s White Cap Exposé Flyer: “The White Cap issues of the Utica Saturday Globe For the Month of January, commencing Jan. 5, 1889, contain thrilling accounts of the raids of the White Caps, a complete history of this mysterious combination, and striking engravings of the scenes which have made their name a terror in the West.” The White Caps were antigovernment vigilantes who dispensed their own law in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Victims, white and black, could expect beatings, whippings and even execution at the hands of White Cap night riders.
