Patriotic nationalists continued Lincoln's economic program after the
President's 1865 murder. Post-Civil War Reconstruction regimes in several
Southern states, led by freed black slaves and allied whites, began to put
through measures of industrial and agricultural development.

But, the British and their allies in the former Confederacy struck back,
using London's modus operandi of creating "indigenous" insurgencies, to
wield against their political enemies. This was the technique that Lord
Palmerston perfected in the mid-nineteenth century: He deployed a veritable
zoo of national, religious, and ethnic insurgencies, through agents such as
Giuseppe Mazzini, the better to retain British global geopolitical

After Lincoln's death, a covert movement known as the Ku Klux Klan,
beginning in 1867 in Tennessee, overturned the Reconstruction regimes with
violence and riots, assassinating those loyal to the United States,
torturing and killing black people who asserted rights which black and white
Union soldiers had secured in the Civil War.

Many years later, when the criminals were no longer in danger of punishment
for these crimes, some "inside stories" of the post-Civil War KKK were
published, glorifying the Klan in order to re-create it in the twentieth
century. A few years after a United States national monument had been
erected in Albert Pike's honor, the leading pro-KKK historian, Walter L.
Fleming, disclosed and praised the kingpin role that Pike had played in the
Klan's terror spree against U.S. law.[5] (An academic darling of the eastern
Anglophile elite, Fleming was considered the pre-eminent historian of
Southern Reconstruction.)

Pike was the KKK's "chief judicial officer," Fleming wrote; Pike thus ruled
officially over the Klan's internal disciplinary or counterintelligence
department. In the KKK birth-state of Tennessee, Pike was the president of
the Bar Association and publisher of the main racist newspaper.

But it was as "Sovereign Grand Commander" of the Scottish Rite, the
recognized boss of the southern white freemasonic order, that Pike exercised
the great clandestine power that welded the KKK together. Fleming cites
Pike's masonic colleagues and Klan co-founders as the main sources for his
KKK history. Pike's successor as Scottish Rite masonic Grand Commander,
Congressman James Richardson, introduced the 1898 House resolution
authorizing the Pike statue; Richardson had been Speaker of the Tennessee
House of Representatives in the heyday of the Ku Klux Klan power in that

In defense of the Klan insurrection, Fleming writes that "the
ex-Confederates . . . naturally [formed] secret associations . . . for
self-defense." Fleming then furnishes European precedents for Pike's KKK:
"the Carbonari of Italy, the Tugendbund and the Vehmgericht of Germany, the
Klephts of Greece, Young Italy, the Nihilists of Russia, the Masonic order
in most Catholic countries during the first half of the Nineteenth Century,
Beati Paoli of Sicily, the Illuminati, etc." Such groups are "textbook
cases" of the British colonial and secret service tradition of manipulating
"indigenous" people.

A Massachusetts tory, Pike went south to incite whites against the Union; he
helped lead the Knights of the Golden Circle, which made armed, filibuster
attacks against Mexico and Cuba, and organized the Southern secession. As a
Confederate general during the Civil War, Pike was in charge of enticing
American Indians to war on the United States; his atrocities and war crimes
led to his arrest by the embarrassed Confederates, and an 1865 indictment by
the United States for treason. Pike fled to Canada, remaining there under
the protection of his British Empire sponsors until the heat was off.[6]

When Pike returned to the South, the old Knights of the Golden Circle logo
was transmuted into the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan--the title taken from
the Greek kuklos, or circle. Pike's Arkansas indictment for war crimes
against American soldiers was swept aside by the power of Pike's own
clandestine terrorist movement over the Southern justice system. Well known
in European occult circles for his satanic writings, a sybarite of massive
girth, Pike died in 1891.
