Klu Klux Klan Visits Bois D' Arc Church

Klu Klux Klan Visits Bois D' Arc Church

During song service on Sunday evening at the Bois D'Arc Baptist church five miles north of Farmersville, twenty-one members of the Klu Klux Klan marched into the church following the leader who was carrying a U. S. Flag, left a contribution of $21.00 and a message stating that the Klan was in sympathy with the work done by the Bois D'Arc Baptist church and that its organization upholds church work. The twenty-one men wore the regulation uniform of the Klan. They marched out of the church as orderly as they came in. The affair has created a lot of comment in Bois D'Arc Township.
