Funeral Service205 viewsNew Jersey Klansmen Conduct Funeral for Member of Invisible Empire. This remarkable photograph was taken Saturday, March 3rd, 1923 at the Fairmont Cemetery at Newark, N.J. when twenty five Klansmen wearing full regalia, performed burial services over the body of a dead member. No effort was made to stop the demonstration which took but ten minutes. Several hours later, other New Jersey Klansmen at Point Pleasant, planted a wooden cross in a street, set it afire, and then sped away. Hundreds were attracted to the scene of the flaming cross.
