A letter written in 1976 went viral this week.
In 1970, the newly elected Alabama Attorney General, 29 year old Bill Baxley, reopened the 1963 16th Street Church bombing case that killed four young African-American girls and injured countless others. This enraged many people, specifically the Ku Klux Klan. In 1976, an outraged Edward R. Fields, Grand Dragon of the New Order Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and founder of the National States’ Rights Party, sent Baxley a threatening letter.
