Using the Bullwhip Days reading testimony by freedmen and women, describe the tactics used by the Ku Klux Klan in some detail.

Hi, 
I am a international student who taking American History class.

I have an assignment that required us to analyze several texts and draw conclusions about topics in a well-written two 
or three-paragraph essay after reading one chapter from Bullwhip days book. (I will upload the part of the book that professor gave us, so the sources has to be only from the book.)
This is the following question of assignment:

Using the Bullwhip Days reading testimony by freedmen and women, describe the tactics used by the Ku Klux Klan in some detail.  What tactics did the KKK use to intimidate former slaves?  Is there a pattern to which individuals seem to be targeted by the KKK?  Be thorough.
      To make your argument stronger, make sure you note which speaker is giving the evidence you’re using (e.g. “…according to Hiram Martin, or “…in the words of…”, or “as x,y, and z explain,” etc.  This tells the reader that you have a firsthand source and strengthens your argument.
