Description:
George Washington, the first President of the United States, was initiated into Freemasonry in the Fredericksburg Lodge in Virgina, 1752 (age 20). Mr. George Washington was an active Freemason, and was even nominated for Grand Master of the Independent Grand Lodge but he declined. It is speculated that Freemasonry played a critical role in the defeat of the British army as he was known to have never willingly given independent command to officers who were not Freemasons.
