The majority of the commanders of the Continental Army were Freemasons and members of “Army Lodges.”

Most of Washington’s Generals were Freemasons.

The Boston Tea Party was planned at the Green Dragon Tavern, also known as the “Freemasons’ Arms,” and “the Headquarters of the Revolution.”

George Washington was sworn in as the first President of the United States by Robert Livingston, Grand Master of New York’s Masonic Lodge. The Bible on which he took his oath was from his own Masonic lodge.
