Klan Plans Rallies at Antietam, Gettysburg



A Maryland Ku Klux Klan group says it plans to hold a rally this weekend at the Antietam National Battlefield near Sharpsburg.
 
Richard Preston of Rosedale is imperial wizard of the Confederate White Knights. Preston says he expects to bring nine members to the Civil War site Saturday.
Battlefield officials didn't immediately return calls from The Associated Press.
 
But Washington County Sheriff Douglas Mullendore says park officials have asked his agency to stand by with a transport vehicle in case of any arrests.
Preston says he aims to hold a similar rally next month at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
 
He says the group is protesting U.S. immigration policies and the administration of President Barack Obama. Such rallies are allowed if organizers obtain a special use permit.
