    One of the enduring yet little-examined themes in Civil War lore is the widespread belief that on the field of battle and afterward, members of Masonic lodges would give aid and comfort to wounded or captured enemy Masons, often at great personal sacrifice and danger. This work is a deeply researched examination of the recorded, practical effects of Freemasonry among Civil War participants on both sides.

    Daryl says: "Excellent choice for any Civil War collection"
    "Informative and Inspiring - Terrible Reader"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the story, the facts and the meaning behind it. I continue to be amazed at how the fraternal ties of brother masons did more to remind them of their duties to their fellow creatures than did their religious convictions or upbringing. I recommend this book to all freemasons and to anyone interested in this important part of the civil war. It is both enlightening and inspiring. May brotherly love prevail...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator sounded like a text-to-speech app. I had to keep asking myself, "Is this a real human being reading this?" I concluded it was - which didn't help much as I couldn't figure out why they would have chosen someone like that to read a book like this.
