Starting out with a carefully-researched recounting of Worshipful Brother George Washington's first entrance into the Lodge of Fredericksburg, Hodapp then traces the history of Freemasonry from its origins, shrouded as they are in mystery and speculation, up through the organization of the very first Masonic Grand Lodge in London and on across the Atlantic Ocean to America.
Sprinkled with diagrams and pictures of important Masonic sites in the District, the majority of this book looks at the history of Masonry as it has developed in the District of Columbia. Rumors and questions most notably brought before the public in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code are examined and evaluated from the enlightened position of the author, a Past Master of two Masonic Lodges and author of Freemasons for. Dummies.
