Georgetown  Texas

The Williamson County Historical Commission recently announced a Texas historical marker commemorating 1923 Klan trials will be dedicated at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16 at the historic Williamson County Courthouse.

The marker will commemorate the 1923-24 trials prosecuted by county District Attorney Dan Moody and his team. The cases are widely considered the first successful prosecution of Klan members in the United States.

Moody was later elected attorney general and served two terms as Texas state governor, the youngest man ever elected to both offices.

The dedication will be followed by a reception and promotional viewing of a new documentary being produced about the trials.
