About this Item
Pictorial broadside printed on blue paper, 4 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches. Tiny chips at bottom corners, small hole between the "D" and "A" of "SATURDAY" in title. Still, a very good copy. A small broadside or handbill advertising the publication of a series of newspaper articles focused on the White Caps, the successor to the Ku Klux Klan first formed in Indiana. The articles were written by the editor of the UTICA SATURDAY GLOBE, who had recently "spent three weeks among the White Caps in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky" and promises to "depict the doings of the 'Masked Riders in White,' in vivid terms." The central image of a hooded figure with black eyes offers a striking and ominous visual companion to the ad text. The text promises readers "the most exciting story of the century." The White Caps emerged from the ashes of the first Ku Klux Klan, although they had no central leadership and were more dispersed and unofficial than their predecessors. It was more of an organic movement than the Klan, but nevertheless resulted in the same kind of racial violence. The White Caps engaged in vigilante justice, lynchings, and domestic terrorism, and counted the governor of Indiana, James A. Mount, among its members. The White Caps lasted throughout the 1890s and into the early 20th century before the reemergence of the Klan in the early 20th century. OCLC records just one copy of the present handbill, at Duke University. OCLC 919447138. Seller Inventory # WRCAM56291
