Ku-Klux Klan... mention of Sleepy Hollow...
Item # 619396
September 16, 1871
THE WORLD, New York, Sept. 16, 1871 The front page has an article regarding the Ku-Klux Klan: "The Phantom Ku-Klux" which provides details related to the infamous Ku Klux Klan Conspiracy. The article's focus is the trial held in Raleigh, North Carolina (see).
Another unrelated but interesting front page article is: "NOT HANGED", with subhead "...the Sleepy Hollow Murderer, Saved from the Gallows".
Eight pages, margin browning, a few archival mends, generally nice.
