First, Jason I hope you will allow this type of question on the board.
As a Master Mason here in Texas, I am just curious how many of you are traveling men? As with the American Revolution, the creation of the Republic of Texas was greatly influence by the Masonic order.
How about the French and Indian war period? Anyone know of the impact Masonry may have had on the out come of the conflict?

Fraternally,
Colonel Tubbs

I am.

And I know a number of other people who are also in our organization here in the west, which I meet when at muzzleloading conventions, lectures, book signings and at various historical gatherings. Eastern men in The Order of the Beaver may be able to help you with the F & I information.

Jerry,
Have you ever seen Milam B. Lamar's rifle? Shines lots of light.

I think Washington probably became a Mason during the time. Most American Lodges got their Charters from British Military Lodges.

A regular lodge can only meet where it has dispensation for, but Military Lodges can meet where ever they are.

I was raised in a Military Lodge in Germany.

There is documentation of a British Soldier being saved from the Huron fires, by a French Officer who heard his distress signal.


I wonder how he explained that to other officers and the Jesuit black-robes?

Interesting organization, however, me being of the Catholic persuasion I am a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus but not a Mason.

Sieur Phillipe Chenier, I know several Roman Catholics who are Masons.
I attend KC fish-fries very often, good organization. One must realize that the Masonic Order dates to King Soloman of the Old Test.
I am guessing that a French Officer trumped a priest.



James,

I am very well aware of the history and mythology of the Masonic Order, and also have been told its open to various religions, however that was not always the case.

Some of Masons in these parts must be old school cause no Catlicks Allowed! LOL!

Many of my Army Officer classmates were members and we are still the best of friends. My intent was not to slight Masons at all. I was just curious as to the story you quoted.

The French were pretty darn Catholic and it would seriously be frowned upon to even think of being involved in a predominantly Protestant organization.

I think it would be political suicide for even thinking of wearing a masonic pin amongst so many Catholics and those who have earn the Order of St. Louis, a very Catholic award.

I also think that the French Officer would also know how important the burning of captives was to their Native Allies and perhaps would not interfere with such customs.

Anyway, it sounded a bit like romantic fiction. I would like to see the quote and the source as well as any information on French Catholics as Masons either openingly or covert.

Brother Tubbs,

I too am a Mason, Grand Saline #1269. I got to attend the Masonic Oak 2 years ago, very impressive history lesson. I hope to attend again in the future.

Sieur,
The one who might of saved the soldier might very well have been a native. After all Brant was a mason, so why not other natives. And by the way I agree, a Frenchmen , if he was a mason, was likely a closet one.
And yes I am a mason and a past Master of my lodge. As was my father, his father,and his father before him. 2B1 ask 1

Thomas, the Masonic Oak picnic will be help on Sunday, May 18th if you are interested in coming.
To explain the Masonic Oak and its importance in Texas history.

The Masonic Oak is located in Brazoria County and is where six Texas Masons met and resolved to petition the Grand Lodge of Louisiana for a dispensation to form a Lodge of Free Masons in Texas.
This was granted by the Grand Master of Louisiana and the charter for the first lodge in Texas was in Brother Anson Jones saddle bag during the Battle of San Jacinto.

I was raised in October 2007.

I am a "Lewis" from a long line of Masons on my Mom's side of the family.

It is something I enjoy immensely.
