Thank you, Randy, for clarifying this. I've edited your photo's caption and corrected my error. I'm thinking that it may be a Knights of Pythias medallion but as you probably know, the KGC used the Knights of Pythias as a cover for their own meetings after the War ended.

I found this medallion - I am Randy Farmer. I did not dig it up out of the ground. It had been handed down for generations by a North Texas family. By the time I saw it they did not know what it was. I sent pictures of it to the Grand Masonic Lodge of Texas and they said that it was not a Masonic medallion, but it did use symbols of the Texas Lodge. The archivist said he had never heard of the KGC.

Johnny, this website is for educational and research purposes only. We do not promote the beliefs or philosophy of the Knights of the Golden Circle which disbanded in 1916. There are some pretenders out there who want people to think they are the KGC but I do not endorse nor belong to those groups and believe they detract from a serious study of this historically important organization.

I say we get together and have some replicas made so we can belong to the reborn Knights Of The Golden Circle and be medallion holders! It would be good to have a legible medal for that purpose. And to also have Membership certificates. Am I asking to much? By the way without having to look for the rosters etc. Where are the rosters kept. Does anyone know? Please drop a line. Wild Bill P. S. Am I treading on sacred ground?

I would love to have a replica of this great piece of K.G.C. history!!


As far as I know, no replicas of this historic item have been produced. I believe it was found in North Carolina at a Civil War battle campsite only a couple of years ago.
