A great country, this time the United States of America, was torn by tragic civil war. Brother fought against brother, and father fought against son. This young but strong country seemed doomed to complete disintegration.

Out of this disunity, a young Confederate soldier named Harry St. John Dixon assembled a small band of dedicated Sigma Chi’s in a little

log cabin outside Atlanta on September 17, 1864, to conduct an initiation.

Pledged to high ideals, these men were ready to fulfill them, even when death seemed imminent. From their meeting sprang new hope

for reunifying their fraternity—North and South.

Sigma Chi sought unity, even during intense division. And it would survive the Civil War through Dixon’s acts and his inspiration.

The words “In Hoc Signo Vinces” bridged the Mason-Dixon line, and Sigma Chi was united again.


The Emperor Constantine and Harry St. John Dixon, two warriors centuries apart, were joined by the White Cross in the spirit of brotherhood


Near the site of the Constantine Chapter meeting place is a beautiful marble Memorial Monument in the shape of a Sigma Chi badge.
