The Ku Klux Klan emerged in Wood County, Ohio, in late 1922, and at its peak, the white supremacist group numbered nearly 1,400 members in the county. Klan members occupied many municipal and county-elected positions, and nearly 40 percent of the Protestant ministers of Wood County joined the group in the 1920s. The Klan engaged in cross burnings, public marches and vigilante activities here during the 1920s and 1930s. Join author Michael Brooks as he examines the unsettling history of the KKK in Wood County.
