On Sunday, April 1 at 2 p.m., in a lecture titled "Building the Temple of Liberty: Freemasonry and the Founding of America," Dr. Steven Bullock, Professor of History at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, will discuss Freemasonry in the Revolutionary era, noting its role in the coming break with England, in the war that followed, and in the new American nation that emerged out of it.
The lecture will be held at the National Heritage Museum at 33 Marret Road in Lexington, Massachusetts.
The National Heritage Museum is an American history museum founded and supported by 32° Scottish Rite Freemasons in the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States of America.
