For some reason, a similar wartime benefit has not been mentioned in the standard

Masonic literature.

The object of this paper is to trace the actions of a particular group of Masons. The

Appendix lists the fifteen charter members and the twenty-two other soldiers who

received their Masonic degrees in Confederate Lodge. Preliminary searches, using the

National Parks Service’s “Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System”

(http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/soldiers.cfm) and other on-line resources, indicate that

sufficient data exist to trace the war experiences of these thirty-seven Masonic soldiers.

By comparing these men with a matched sample of non-Masons from the same regiment,

it may be possible to infer possible benefits to being a military Mason. Two important

markers of possible difference are promotions and assignments.
