AMERICA FIRST: During the 1920s, a resurgent KKK moved North with their white supremacist “100 percent American” message. Millions joined the Klan and rallied to its various causes, including suppression of Blacks, restricting immigration of Eastern and Southern Europeans, limiting the political influence of Catholics and Jews and strictly enforcing Prohibition. After an unceremonious forced retreat from New York City, the KKK moved their headquarters to Binghamton NY.

In the early 1920s, membership in the KKK quickly escalated to six figures under the leadership of “Colonel” William Simmons and advertising guru Edward Young Clarke.

On St. Patrick's Day in 1923, Binghamton city residents were shocked to discover pamphlets promoting the Klan had been left at their homes. The Klan's state headquarters were housed in a building near Henry and Wall streets.

The KKK was active in many areas of New York state, including Ithaca, Syracuse, Niagara Falls and New York City with Binghamton as the 'Kapital'. Parades of men and women members of the Klan marched in along Court Street in downtown Binghamton.

Cross burnings and KKK rallies were held at Stow Flats in Binghamton and in the Union District of Endicott. Binghamton's past KKK activity sparked a new controversy in 1993 when civil rights activists called for the removal of a reference to the activity in a tourism brochure distributed by the Broome County Chamber of Commerce.

The crimes committed in the name of its bigoted beliefs were despicable—hangings, floggings, mutilations, tarring and featherings, kidnappings, brandings by acid, along with a new intimidation tactic, cross-burnings. The Klan had become a clear threat to public safety and order.
