The Traitor

Thomas Dixon

Book Overview: 

Dixon lived through Reconstruction, and believed it ranked with the French Revolution in brutality and criminal acts. The Traitor (1907), the final book in his trilogy which also includes The Leopard’s Spots (1902), and The Clansman (1905), spans a two-year period just after Reconstruction (1870-1872), and covers the decline of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina. Dixon, whose father was an early Klan leader, maintained that the original Klan, the “reconstruction Klan” was morally formed in desperation to protect the people from lawlessness, address Yankee brutality, and save southern civilization. Now, in this final installment, he portrays how and why the later Klan falls into disrepute. The story includes folk legends, haunted houses, secret passageways, and spectral apparitions as part of its complicated story, weaving fact, fiction and romance in typical Dixon style.

The third volume of the author's Reconstruction Trilogy. A story of the American South in the years after the Civil War, told from a white Southern point of view and very racist - par for the era it was written in. The Ku Klux Clan is presented as a Southern white organization set up to resist th...more

I like historical fiction, but this book was more Harlequin romance than historical fiction. Secret Service agent Ackerman, who had been brought to Independence, NC by Stella Butler to entrap John Graham for the murder of her father, is in love with Susie Wilson, John Graham's landlady's daughter...more

Interesting tale of the “Reconstruction”

I am curious as to the historical accuracy of this and the other two tales by the same author, who purported to have been historically accurate.
