The Knights of the Golden Circle

The Knights of the Golden Circle. Ask any adult if they have ever heard of the name and most will say “No”. You might have one or two remember a reference to them in the movie “National Treasure” but don’t expect them to have any other frame of reference for them.  On the other hand you might ask a young boy at the local arcade or someone spending hours online engaged in some mock war where they wear their role-playing persona as a suit of amour and you might have some answer in the affirmative.  For them the K.G.C. may have been a cryptic organization that started in the past just prior to the War Between the States but has continued on underground even into the far future and even into the realms of space.  Forgotten about in history books they have survived in comic books, novels, video games and cyberspace.  For these young neo-Templar warriors the Knights of the Golden Circle are free to fight whomever and wherever their imagination can take them.
