Publication: Vigilance Publishing Company, 1924, Binghamton, NY

An 8-Page, Stapled Newspaper. Published weekly. 9"x12" format, with 3 columns per page. This edition: Volume 2 Number 11, Binghamton, N.Y., September 12,1924. "Dedicated to the promulgating of the distinctive and worthy principles of the Knights and Women of the Ku Klux Klan; to unflinchingly challenge any influence detrimental to the welfare of peoples within our National borders, to promote a practical Brotherhood of Man, and to instill in the hearts of our populace an undying faith that these glorious United States of America shall forever prosper in the Light and Love of God, through Jesus Christ Our Lord." Sixteen articles are presented: "Klan Not In Politics", "Press Aids Criminals", "Our Tottering Institutions", and many more. A few advertisements. A very interesting cartoon-style illustration of Man "Breaking His Bonds!", by E. Theo Nelson (4.25"x5"). The front cover is dedicated to a photographic illustration of "Imperial Palace, Knights Of The Ku Klux Klan, Atlanta, Ga." A couple of short 1/2" inch closed-tears to fore edge of fragile newspaper, not affecting text and a tiny hole in the middle of this publication; so small that the text is basically unaffected. Light general soiling to front cover and a vertical and horizontal remnant of past folds. A very scarce publication from almost 100 years ago.
