For hundreds of years, one secret society has been rumored to control the destinies of men, governments, and even nations. While this society has been reviled by some, it is the source of endless fascination for others. The secret society is Freemasonry. It is believed by some that the Freemasons may have actually started the Revolutionary War and that the Constitution of the United States of America was modeled on Masonic philosophies. Who were these Freemasons?
In this first volume of Famous American Freemasons, author and Freemason Todd E. Creason provides a brilliant collection of biographical sketches of famous Freemasons throughout American history. Through little-known stories of some of the fraternity’s most influential members, he shows the amazing range of contributions Freemasons have made to the causes of freedom, politics, philosophy, discovery, and the arts—contributions that have helped to define the nation. Famous American Freemasons: Volume I is the beginning of a story of the American experience told through the lives and eyes of some of America’s most famous citizens, and Freemasonry’s most celebrated members. Creason’s great passion for his subject, his witty prose and often humorous insights make this an enjoyable journey into American history for any reader, and is without doubt the beginning of what will be a highly anticipated series.
