Another peek at our forefathers and their beliefs. It is sometimes difficult to understand why such as these men belonged to such an organization when they put "In God We Trust" as a basis for our country.

I read 144 out of 200 pages and had to throw in the towel. I should have known this book was bunk when the author started going through the astrological signs of Washington, Jefferson and Franklin. This book is written like a high school term paper/academic essay. Every "fact" or item of proof is an opinion or quote from someone we are supposed to believe is an expert. Perhaps this book is meant for academics in the field of conspiracy theorists. This was not what I expected at all.

I made it as far as page 116 and decided this book was not worth any more of my time. I did scan through the remainder of the book just to make sure. It is essentially a promotion of the idea that Freemasonry with its symbols and hidden secrets is the key to man ushering in a wonderful world. There are a few interesting historical items, but don't expect to gain an understanding of Freemasonry.

I found the sections on the North American Indians contributions to the constitution fascinating, but the rest unfortunately has been spoken about enough that I found it tedious... I will further my interest in 6 nations, the first multi-tribal governing body!!! That bit of information made reading this book invalueable!!!

A few of the chapters were really interesting and very thought provoking. But others I found to be rather dull. The book did pique my interest and made me want to do further research into some of the topics discussed.

I'm a sucker for this stuff so it's hard to be objective. This one differs from the other fraternal/conspiracy books in that it covers such a wide range of orders allowing cross-reference.
