The Independent Order of Odd Fellows was founded in Baltimore, Maryland on April 26, 1819. The movement originated in Great Britain and was a response to the harsh conditions of the time. The Odd Fellows came together under the common commitment to take care of one’s fellow man and provide aid to those in need. They are also known as “The Three Link Fraternity” which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth, represented by the three gold chain links on the button.
