The Clansman

by Thomas Dixon

While not connected with it in any way, this is a companion volume to the author's "epoch-making" story _The Leopard's Spots_. It is a novel with a great deal to it, and which very properly is going to interest many thousands of readers. (Later adapted to film by D.W. Griffith as The Birth of a Nation.)

It is, first of all, a forceful, dramatic, absorbing love story, with a sequence of events so surprising that one is prepared for the fact that much of it is founded on actual happenings; but Mr. Dixon has, as before, a deeper purpose--he has aimed to show that the original formers of the Ku Klux Klan were modern knights errant taking the only means at hand to right intolerable wrongs.

[Used as a recruiting tool for the Ku Klux Klan in the teens and twenties, it was also used by director D.W. Griffith as the basis for “The Birth of a Nation.”]
