¡HOLA! AHORA ESTÁ INVADIDO

From the National Archives:
The Knights of the Golden Circle wanted to bring into the Union as slave states a “Golden Circle” that included Mexico, Central America, and parts of the Caribbean. Toward that end, members twice tried to invade Mexico.
After the Civil War broke out, the Knights of the Golden Circle became the Order of American Knights and later the Sons of Liberty. They often worked with Confederate Agents based in Canada and with Copperheads–an extreme wing of Northern Democrats who opposed the war, sometimes violently.
[Above] is the calling card of George Bickley, founder of the Knights of the Golden Circle.
