Society Swords - Markings & Makers

Society Swords carried by so-called secret societies or fraternal societies were popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Society and military associations became very popular after the Civil War and around 1900 there were over seven million members.

There were many types of societies that carried swords, including Military, Military Association, Fraternal, Religious, Veteran, Social, Benevolent, Occupational, Political, Patriotic, Mystic, Nationality, and Antinationality.
