slide6

This President's four sons all became Master Masons. One in 1933, two in 1935 and the last was raised 1953.

This President enjoyed attending lodge and meeting on the level with his brothers. He especially enjoyed attending his Lodge when the Worshipful Master was the gardener of the estate which adjoined his.

This Mason served in the army, studied law, passed the bar and became a District Attorney. He defended the American Indian, was elected to Congress, elected Governor of Tennessee, and was Commander-in-Chief of Texas Army in 1836.

final jeopardy question
Final Jeopardy Question:

The founder of the Ancient Grand Lodge of England, Laurence Dermott, wrote this Book of Constitutions for his Grand Lodge in 1756. When the Ancients and the Moderns merged in 1813, this Book of Constitutions ceased to be used in England. But to this day some Grand Lodges in America still apply this name to their Constitutions.
