In this surprising documentary, archaeologist and historian Neil Oliver examines the links between racism today in the Deep South and the Scots who first occupied it. He begins by explaining that hundreds of thousands of Scots emigrated to America throughout the eighteenth century after being forced off of their land. The arrival of cotton gave them the opportunity to become slave masters and wealthy plantation owners, but the Civil War left them embittered. Because of that, six Scottish-American former Confederate officers formed a fraternal society that became the oldest and most feared hate group in America: the Ku Klux Klan. At the turn of the twentieth century, a racist novel by another Scots American became a bestseller, and the famous film based on it, The Birth of a Nation, revitalized the Klan. Now, well over 1,000 hate groups stalk America, including the League of the South, which advocates a separate Southern society run by "Anglo Celts."
