skillful analyses of disparate views of warfare. Non-traditional histories also include

studies on topics such as Military Medicine and the role of women in both combat and

service support activities.

Confederate Lodge No. 292 existed only during the earliest stages of the Civil War.

During the time of its existence, Fort Morgan was used as an assembly and training site

for the Alabama Militia. The records of this Lodge provide one with a detailed list of the

charter members (who were Freemasons prior to their arrival at Ft. Morgan) as well as a

list of new members. The surviving records of most of the other Military Lodges are only

fragmentary and generally provide the researcher only with the names of some of the

charter members. The great majority of the members of Confederate Lodge were serving

with the Second Alabama Infantry Regiment. This unit was organized in April, 1861, and

was stationed at Ft. Morgan until March, 1862. It was disbanded after its initial one year

of service was completed.

This study will investigate the war experiences of the members of Confederate

Lodge as compared to a sample of non-Masons who were posted at Ft. Morgan during the

period of the Lodge’s existence. Did Masonic membership influence the military careers

of the members?
