The KKK parades through Madison in 1924
Thousands Witness Parade of Klan: Fiery Crosses Give Color to Demonstration
The Ku Klux Klan first appeared in Wisonsin in the fall of 1920. In October of 1924, the Klan staged its first parade in Madison, drawing a sizable crowd to watch the spectacle. With little to offer members and no clear statement of purpose, the KKK was unable to maintain member loyalty and support, and had all but disappeared by 1928.
