This book is about the terrible times that the people of the South went through after the "War For Southern Independence" was over. This book plainly explains why the "Ku Klux Klan" HAD to be formed. As the Prologue says, "Had there been no rule of the tyrannical, corrupt carpetbagger or scalawag rule, there would have been no secret organizations." This book should be taught in every Southern school, because it is as revelant for 2012 as it was back in 1866-1871. "All that the South has ever desired was the Union as established by our forefathers should be preserved and that the government as originally organized should be administered in purity and truth." --- Gen. Robert E. Lee

First of all it should be said that little is taught re: reconstruction post-Civil War. (There is very little focus on history in general, but that's a different matter.) We need to have a better understanding of what happens when a group of people are punished for having supported a particular viewpoint or opinion. This becomes particularly important when the legal/justice system starts treating people differently based on political viewpoint or opinion. This is an extremely useful book if you look at present political conditions, and keep in mind that if we start to lose confidence in our justice system, we could see vigilantism such as that which led to the development of the original Klan. Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.

Stanley F. Horn's Invisible Empire, written in 1939, evokes a significant degree of pro-Klan bias, but in general it still provides a decent overview of the original Reconstruction-era Klan's origin, growth, and demise throughout the Southern states. The author discusses the various states encompassing the realm of the Invisible Empire and relates relevant events which took place in each one. Horn openly characterized his book as the first complete story of the Ku Klux Klan, told in a narrative style for effect. Despite his pro-Klan position, this work served for decades as the standard account of the history of the original Ku Klux Klan. Describing the organizational motivation of the Klan as promotive of amusement and adventure, Horn defends its evolution into a band of protective regulators as an admirable move toward achieving law and order. The movement expanded throughout the South not for reasons of political strategy, he argues, but as a measured response to the existence and activities of the Union League. The Klan, in his judgment, assumed the role of law-enforcerment in its members' own minds, with no contingent tendencies toward offensive violence. In concluding pages, he considers the Congressional Klan investigation in 1871 and the resulting collapse of the Klan. All in all, Horn gives an informative overview of the Klan. Though biased, the book is not an outright apology for the Klan, though--Horn seems to recognize a degree of political motivation behind Klan actions, but he would be sure to insist that any such goals were strictly defensive in nature. A glaring weakness in the account is the lack of documentation. While insisting his story was historically accurate and providing a list of references, Horn refrained from the use of footnotes in order "to avoid interruption to the flow of the narrative."
Horn's Invisible Empire remained an important and lasting work through several decades of shifting viewpoints. While it has largely been relegated to the ash heap of history due primarily to its pro-Klan biased nature, it still affords the reader an illuminating window through which one can gain insight into the thinking of the past and observe the nature of shifting ideologies over time.

Published in 1939, this book belongs to the "Dunning school" of southern history, wherein racist ex-Confederates are the "victims" of Reconstruction, brutally oppressed by "negroes" who are always "insolent," "bumptious," "hopelessly ignorant," rape-happy fiends, "ungrateful" to the "white friends" who formerly enslaved, tortured and raped them for centuries. The Klansmen are "conservative" heroes, rarely committing violence, and then only in "self-defense" against the worst and most corrupt regimes in all of human history. Thankfully, this school of thought has largely died out today, at least north of the Mason-Dixon line and outside the current GOP, reviled by Hon historically as "Radicals" in favor of black civil rights. For an accurate account, I recommend Allen Trelease's book "White Terror," or almost anything else not written and endorsed by pathological racists
