In grade school, you probably learned that the founding fathers were pious men who led a nation of people away from evil religious persecution back in the homelands of England. What they didn’t tell you about was the Masonic history, some which is buried deep within the Declaration of Independence. This was a tradition that most of the historical figures that created the United States of America shared, and that is still thriving today. Notice when you enter a town or city, the welcoming sign often includes support from a local lodge. Perhaps, you found out about the illusive order of Freemasonry from one of the many Masonic books like Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” or “The Illuminati: Facts and Fiction” by Mark Dice. Perhaps you watched “National Treasure” or “Eyes Wide Shut” and simply got curious. Did it make you wonder what else they didn’t tell you about? The only way to find out is to dig deeper. The Masonic order is large and has left being behind clues and information about their workings across the country, and all you need to know is where to look. Jewelry, statuary, and even furniture are known to have markings of the order and provide significant pieces of history. Lucky for you, the reliable sellers on eBay offer pre-loved items and even new replicas of ancient antique Masonic collectibles. See for yourself, and then decide on which truth you are going to believe.
