About This Item

Owosso, Mich.: Cartwrights Photography, 1924. Original panoramic photograph, 8" x 41 3/4", unframed, rolled. Near Fine, slight soiling rear, 1/4" tear and small crease top edge. Original stamp in blue inkon rear stating "Duplicates can be had for $1.50 at Cartwrights, Owosso". Milton V. Cartwright is listed in the "Directory of Early Michigan Photographers" by David V. Tinder, published by Clements Library, 2013. One of the largest gatherings ever of the Ku Klux Klan, over 100,000 people swarmed to Jackson, Michigan on July 4th, 1924 to witness or take part in the fair-like festivities of the so-called "Klonklavation". Thousands of Klansmen marched through the streets of Jackson in a parade that stretched for 2 miles and included 17 floats, 8 bands, and a women's drum corps. At the meeting grounds, which were closely guarded by several hundred Klansmen, the crowds were entertained by a biplane and aerial stuntsman( the plane and a parachutist are seen above the campgrounds in the photograph!). A truly amazing and RARE photograph showing the Klan at the height of their numbers in the US. Internal divisions, criminal behavior by leaders, and external opposition brought about a collapse in membership by 1930.. First Printing. Photograph. Near Fine.
