The More That You Know…


“On April 13, 1873, on Easter Sunday, 150 black and 2 white men were killed during the Colfax Massacre in Colfax, Louisana.
After the Democrats lost a hotly contested race for governor of Louisiana, the Ku Klux Klan and a small army of supporters responded by attacking the Colfax Courthouse. The state militia, which was mainly black, responded but they were outnumbered by their attackers.”
