Overview

DID THE FREEMASONS CREATE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?


Step back in time to the birth of a revolutionary new republic and discover how the utopian ideals of a visionary secret society laid the foundation for the most powerful nation on earth. Follow George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and other Founding Fathers as they transform the democratic principles of their Masonic lodges into a radical new nation.
Solomon’s Builders unravels history from myth as it takes you on a Freemason’s tour of Washington, D.C. It reveals the evidence of Masonic influence during the construction of America and its new capital, including clues hidden in plain sight:

•Masonic connections to national monuments
•Puzzling pentagrams and symbolism in city streets
•The mysterious temples of the “Widow’s Sons”


Solomon’s Builders relates the true stories of these visionary founders, and the fascinating meaning behind the cryptic codes, enigmatic symbols and intriguing architecture that is reputedly the basis for the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s novel The Lost Symbol.

    Factual Information on Freemasonry

    It is refreshing to finally read a book on Freemasonry, written by a freemason. In his new book "Solomon's Builders", Christopher Hodapp presents traditions, explainations on masonry, history of famous freemasons and dispelling myths of Washington D.C. and its buildings regarding freemasons. Several recent books, fictional and non-fiction alike, have used symbols and ritual explainations of Freemasonry but wrongly or half truths. Without sharing signs or symbols reserved for those who seek Masonic membership, Hodapp brings the reader to an understanding of the Masonic world for the mason and non-mason alike. If novels about masonry are leaving you wondering about Freemasonry, then read "Solomon's Builders" for reliable information.

    Skip it...

    While I'm in no position to question or critique the factual basis of this book I must comment on the writing. To put it mildly, the writing is laborious. The author goes on and on and on trying to make his point. This book could have been titled "In Defense of Freemasonry."
    If you're interested in history, as I am, skip this book.

    Reveals America's secret masonic foundation. Sol-Om-On is actually a compound word (astro-theological designation). Templar pirate ships were seafaring masonic lodges (& democracy on the high seas).
