Ku-Klux Klan... mention of Sleepy Hollow...



Item # 664787

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.
