Klan Gathering at Stone Mountain

Hundreds of members of the Ku Klux Klan gathered near the base of Stone Mountain. Three large crosses were burned, and organizers proclaimed that the Klan was “as Solid as Stone Mountain.” Based on the car tags of those attending the event, the majority were from Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
