About Us
The Order of Knights of Pythias is an international, non-sectarian fraternal order, established in 1864
in Washington, DC, by Justus H. Rathbone and was the first fraternal order to be chartered by an Act
of Congress. It's aim was to heal the wounds of the civil war between the North and South and promote
friendship among men and relieve suffering.

Today in addition to supporting our millitary we do charitable work, sponsor dances, have fundraising
events and socials for members and guests.

A special Message Concerning our Returning Veterans
The Knights of Pythias was originally founded in 1864 to soothe the wounds of all military personnel after
the Civil War. The Supreme Lodge has now embarked on a program to honor our returning military personnel
by again offering them membership in our celebrated fraternal order. Once again we will attempt to soothe
their wounds after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

As the only fraternal order chartered by an Act of Congress, we can offer a continued feeling of belonging to
a brotherhood founded on the principles of Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence.

Since the federal government will not issue individual names of returning military personnel, we are requesting
that if anyone has information about any returning military units in their domain, please forward that information
to me so that I can contact them with our offer of membership.

These brothers and sisters have served us well and its time that we as members of the Pythian Order repay
the debt. As an additional thought and benefit, we would suggest to those lodges interested in this program
that they consider free first years dues for all new military members. Fraternally,

Alan Krell, KGS
