The Modern Ku Klux Klan (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from The Modern Ku Klux Klan It seems strange that, in narrating events and analyzing an organization existing in the United States of America in the year 1921, the most appropriate introduction to the subject consists of a few pages from the history of Germany during the Middle Ages. There existed in mediaeval Germany a secret organization, which, in its highest stage of development is said to have numbered over 200,000 members - the Vehmgericht, or secret tribunal. Its origin is clouded in obscurity, some authorities claiming that the system was first founded by Charlemagne, while others say that it was handed down from the most remote pre-historic Germans, but is understood generally to have first appeared in the year 1180 in Westphalia, after which it scattered all over Germany. Its head was the Emperor, assisted by the nobles of his court, and with them men of all ranks, associated together for the formation of "free courts," to try persons accused of crimes against persons and property. The members of the organization were known as "Wissende" or initiated ones. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
