This article is/was the subject of an educational assignment in Spring 2016. Further details were available on the "Education Program:Queen Mary,
University of London/Research Methods (Film) (Spring 2016)" page, which is now unavailable on the wiki.
The lead paragraphs states "The film's release has also been acknowledged as an inspiration for the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan only months later." There is little to no information in the article to substantiate this claim. But, there is content on Ku Klux Klan#Second Klan: 1915–1944Ku Klux Klan § Second Klan: 1915–194 stating the film led to a revival of the clan.
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of The Birth of a Nation's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 19:10, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
I removed this from the "Change of title" section
" to reflect Dixon's belief, taken from his professor, the historian Woodrow Wilson, that the United States emerged from the American Civil War and Reconstruction as a newly-unified nation."
because I have found no reference to Wilson being Dixon's "professor" (they were students together) nor could I find any mention of the name change in the reference given. Carptrash (talk) 15:09, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry, that was my mistake. Wilson was not his professor. deisenbe (talk) 15:18, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
