Description

A cinema milestone, the most important historic pageant filmed up to that time, and the first major film anywhere to stake out a firm position on a volatile, controversial national issue. The saga of a distinguished Southern family at the time of the Civil War that tries to explain and to some extent justify the motivations that led them to form the notorious terrorist organization known as the Ku Klux Klan during the confused days after the War's end.
