Excerpt from Of the Order of Sons of Liberty: Formerly Circle of Honor, Succeeded by Knights of the Golden Circle, Afterward Order of American Knights
In another letter from General Garrington dated April 10th, 1903, he says: "I took such interest, holding that by your knowledge of the whole field we could hold in check any open violence without the excitement of any overt act on the part of the disloyal element. Morton believed in your statements fully. To utilize your evidence and hard labor became necessary to conviction of the chief conspirators. The State (Indiana,) Detectives operating with Morton and myself disclosed desertions, gatherings, and meetings, etc., but none of them gave the clew to documents, rituals, etc. Why, there are people now who say there was no conspiracy, and your authentic record of things which even you did not need to disclose before, now becomes the only surviving material as to its full purpose, and its end."
General Garrington's Report made to the Adjutant General of Indiana from Reno Station, Powder River, Dakota, July 2nd, 1866; page 273, Volume I, "Indiana in the War," says: "About January 1st, 1864, the 'Knights of the Golden Circle,' under the title of the 'Order of American Knights,' changing soon after (February 22nd, 1864,) to the 'Order of Sons of Liberty,' their system was perfected, and their military organization assumed form and substance."
"Indiana in the War," Volume I, Page 307: "What are called the 'secrets' of the Order, its oaths, signs, and passwords, were all discovered as fast as they were changed, but no discovery of the schemes (and real intentions,) of the Order was made public until (learned by Stidger, and) revealed at the trial of Dodd and his associates."
In the "Life of Oliver P. Morton," by Judge Foulke, Volume I, Page 406, Judge Foulke says: "Stidger was the most valuable of all the Government Detectives. He was a Kentuckian who went to Garrington in May 1864."
