    There was an excellent show on the History Channel the focused on Masonic involvement, I think it was one of the "Cities of the Underworld" series shows. I think you can find it for download on their website and you can definitely get thought the Kindle Fire online store.

    That prompts a question.

    Guess the answer depends on who's the bondman.

    Can't say I wasn't shocked the first time I ran across that subject.

    Personally ... I wouldn't have allowed a man in on either side of that transaction. Only because the bondman would have been obligated (i.e, forced) to tell the master the secrets.

    Not much use for slave masters ... either side of any border.

    The underground railroad was quite active here in Jefferson County in Pennsylvania. One of our Past Masters, James A. Minish, and his father-in-law, James A. Winslow, operated stations and were conductors here in Punxsutawney.

    I agree that Masonic lodges were used for some good and noble causes such as the underground railroad but I believe that some southern lodges were used to start evil organizations such as Kkk.

    The secrecy of lodges make it easy to do good or evil deeds.
