Overview

"The president is shot! He has killed the president!"
Originally published in 1905, The Clansman inspired D. W. Griffith's classic film, The Birth of a Nation. It is the second in a series of three historical novels that Thomas Dixon, Jr., wrote about the aftermath of the American Civil War. The first and third volumes of this "Trilogy of Reconstruction," The Leopard's Spots and The Traitor, are also available from Pelican.
Beginning with Lee's surrender and the subsequent assassination of Abraham Lincoln, The Clansman describes the anxiety and confusion of the years immediately after the South's defeat. Between 1865 and 1870, the whole nation struggled with questions of justice and revenge, forgiveness and reparation. With 350,000 Southern soldiers dead, ensuring the welfare of their widows and orphans, as well as the rest of the population, was of paramount concern. Faced with a total breakdown of law and order, some Southern leaders called upon the spirits of their ancestors, the clansmen of Old Scotland. The Ku Klux Klan was conceived as an "Invisible Empire" pledged to protect the people of the South. This is its story.
This edition is illustrated with scenes from The Birth of a Nation and features a new foreword by James P. Cantrell, author of Celtic Southern Literature, also published by Pelican.
