One Shot

This American group was first established in 1866, after the Civil War. Many historians feel that the original intent was to resist the reconstruction of the South as much as possible and to stop the education of the freed slaves. The leadership of the organization, such as it was, deplored the use of violence as much as the government did, and it was effectively destroyed by Ulysses S. Grant in 1870.

A rebirth of the group occurred in 1915, and it was this incarnation that preached racism and white supremacy, and became known for lynchings and cross burnings. What is the name of this organization?


Ans - Ku Klux Klan
