New England KKK Mirror

DATE
Year: 1925
Decade: 1920s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

A small mirror with various Klan symbols on it including a Bible, Constitution, flag, flaming cross and cameos of Presidents Washington and Lincoln. In the 1920s, the KKK was stronger North of the Mason-Dixon line than below – they focused on immigration, opposed non-Nordic peoples and tended to ignore Black and Jewish people. Northeastern Klansmen tended to be Republicans and their fathers and grandfathers had opposed slavery.
