The klan was born in Tennessee and had gone through some changes from the very start. It was almost non-existent, shortly after having being formed, because of some ne'er do wells that crept in unawares. When this happened, the group was shut down by its leaders, who wanted nothing to do with law breaking, intimidation, etc. Later on, in 1915, the Klan was "re-vamped", by William Simmons, on Stone Mountain, in Georgia. This signaled the rebirth of the Klan. Many ( if not most), still consider the Klan to be in the second era, though some in the organization, feel we are in the 3rd, or even 4th era. On July 1st, 1916, the klan received its official charter from the state. On September 10, 1924, the Democratic gubernatorial primary was held, and William Harris, a klansman, defeated Thomas Hardwicke, who strongly opposed the klan. On June 7, 1941, the klan held a national convention in Atlanta, and all but 10 states were represented. As you can see, the Klan has a long and rich history in Georgia, and is now in the process of recruiting more members, for the new challenges that lay ahead.
