Masonry in Texas by James David Carter
The author begins with a history of Freemasonry, first in England, then France and Spain, and then in North America. Then the author illustrates the contribution of Freemasonry to both sides of the American Revolution, Masonic influence on the Constitution and the new nation of the USA. He then shows the influence of Freemasonry on the Mexican War of Independence from Spain, and on the leadership of Mexico, showing how this version of Freemasonry allowed itself to be unduly swayed by politics. Finally, the author shows how Freemasonry influenced both sides of the War for Texan Independence, and how Freemasonry was a driving force in the Texas Republic from its inception, through the authorship of the Texas Constitution, and ultimately in allowing the USA to annex Texas.
