August 6, 1925- The Grand Dragon and a local Kleagle prepare for a rally in the Nation's Capital, Washington DC.
Klansmen, I greet you. How are you doing and are you ready for the march tomorrow to show this waning country that we are not defensive and that we plan to rid all blacks and Catholics.
I am doing well sir. I am prepared and very excited to show this country how powerful we are. I checked the itineraries for the trains and planes. We should expect about 60,000 Klansmen to arrive and participate.
I hate Catholics and Jews so much.
Hey, look! That woman brought her baby!
August 7, 1925- Klansmen begin to arrive for the rally.
It sure is hot outside today.
KKK Rally members sleep here!
Dangit! I sure hope that 3,000 men will be enough for America to know how strong we are; it doesn't matter; we will make it work! Let's get this show on the road!
Sir, only half of the expected 6,000 Klansmen arrived and of that half, a hundred of them had to go to the hospital due to dehydration and heat stroke!
August 8, 2015- It is the day of the rally and the Kleagle has some upsetting news for the Grand Dragon.
The Klansmen marched down Washington DC that hot day, but it soon started to drizzle, and then it started to shower a lot, which abruptly ended the rally.
This march on Washington DC was important during the 1920s because it showed that the Ku Klux Klan was alive and very strong. It is remembered today because it is an accurate anti-semitic and hatred toward African-Americans feelings that were common in the 1920s due to the number of immigrants at this time.
