Notes:
The Order of Knights of Pythias is an international non-sectarian fraternal order, founded in 1864, and was the first to be chartered by an act of Congress. In response to the anger, hatred, and revenge that was rampant during the Civil War years, Justus Henry Rathbone felt an urgent need to rekindle brotherly sentiment throughout the land. He believed that the spark of brotherly love kindled by the old Pythagorean Brotherhood still burned deep in the hearts of men. He decided that this old spirit could be revived and a new fraternity could be established under which men would gather under one common banner. Based upon the power of the comradeship of Damon and Pythias, and that men who appreciated the true meaning of human friendship could unite, Rathbone proposed a new organization. This mighty fraternity was to be based upon the glorious trinity of Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence, and would proclaim "Peace on Earth, Good will toward men". The members of the Fraternal Order Knights of Pythias are deeply involved in their communities throughout the United States and Canada. Their social and charitable activities are directed towards enhancing the great principles of the Order - FRIENDSHIP, CHARITY, and BENEVOLENCE. From their website: http://www.pythias.org.
