About the Knights of Pythias

The Knights of Pythias organization was created Feb. 19, 1864, by Justus H. Rathbone with the purpose of repairing relations between the North and South following the Civil War. Rathbone named the group after the story of Damon and Pythias, whose unwavering friendship impressed the King of Syracuse enough to halt the execution of Damon after being marked as a traitor, as legend has it.
