Letter from George W. L. Bickley on Knights of the Golden Circle
George W. L. Bickley was the son of George Bickley, founder of the Knights of the Golden Circle, a pre-war filibustering organization. This letter was written from Ohio State Prison in 1863, after George Jr. was arrested after escaping to the North with his family. It outlines his understanding of the pre-war KGC and his ignorance of the wartime organization in the Midwest.
