    KGC question

    Are there any actual relics or regalia of the KGC, like medals or swords or insignia ? Were they an actual organized lodge ?

    I happen to have a Bowie style knife that was made to represent the KGC. It is marked "KGC - 1865" however after a bunch of research it was determined
    that this was not made in 1865 and most likely in 1965 for the 100 year anniversary of the KGC.

    The KGC did not have a lodge as much as just a secret meeting place. KGC would use a Masonic Blue Lodge for meetings as to disguise their meeting agenda.
    Yes, the KGC did have material with certain signs and symbols on it. Mostly their signs were (sss) secret signs & symbols on buildings , trees, stone , paper and person.
    Albert Pike was a CSA General, founder of KGC and died in Washington ,D.C. under-so-called-house-arrest.

    One of the reasons there was Not a second rebellion from the South was the happening of the Spanish American War which brought all Americans together.
    The South Never wanted to over throw any state or the Union. The Morill tariff was the main reason for the War of Northern Aggression. 37% taxes on all Southern exports. Morill was a steel magnet from Vermont.
    Hence, the secret societies. North, South, Mexico, Canada, Europe

    Do you mean "The Civil War"? Sad that you would call it anything but that. That war's been over for 155 years and we won. Let it go...
