I have been reading a little bit about the Knights of the
Golden Circle. In an ongoing attempt to find out all I can
about my gr-grandfather Joseph Johnson, who fought with the
8th Missouri Confederate Calvary, would this have been an
organization that he might have joined? He was just an
ordinary Missouri farmer, whose beliefs and ideals were
laid in the Southern culture. I am trying to get a picture
of him as he believed, and the values that he led his life by. Thanks, Mike.
