A Question and a Reminder

First the question: Can anyone out there point me to research material about the Redshirts? They were active after the Civil War, primarily in Mississippi, South Carolina, and North Carolina. During a period when the Klan wasn’t very active. They performed all the functions of the Klan in partnership with southern Democrats. I was amazed I had never heard of them and am working on a story.
