The Dollar Bill Essay, Research Paper All of the symbols on the one dollar bill have an historical connection with the oldest, largest, and most prominent secret society in the world, the Freemasons. Freemasonry s origin predates the American Revolution. Early in the 18th century the British Empire in its quest for world power needed a covert intelligence gathering agency with effective access to the people of Europe. Masonic lodges, which were basically Catholic institutions for building cathedrals, schools, and other structures were widely in use across Europe during the Middle Ages. About 1717 the British Secret Intelligence Service began to systematically purge the ranks of Masonry of Catholic influences. Covert intelligence gathering was hidden from rank and file Masons

behind stories of Jewish antiquities and Christian Knighthood along with the occult cover of a multitude of mysterious degrees on initiation. During the 18th century Freemasonry was always patriotic in Great Britain, but in America and France Freemasonry was a primary revolutionary force. Britain s token resistance to the American Revolution allowed New Age (novus ordo seclorum) Deists and Freemasons to install a Masonic republic in North America complete with checks and balances designed to make it subservient to the money power of the Bank of England.

He took his oath of office as President of the United States on the Bible of St. John s Lodge of New York City, and took part in Masonic ceremonies in laying the corner stone of the capital in Washington, D.C. The Great Seal In the Great Seal of the United States, as pictured on the back of the one dollar bill, is an eagle whose right wing has 32 feathers, the number of ordinary degrees in Scottish Rite Freemasonry. The left wing has 33 feathers, the additional feather corresponding to the Thirty-Third Degree of the Scottish

Rite conferred for outstanding Masonic service. The 9 feathers in the tail correspond to the nine degrees in the York Rite. The eagle is a symbol of St. John the Evangelist, the great patron of Freemasonry. The arrows in its left talon refer to King David, a man of many wars and of much bloodshed. The olive branch in its right talon, the peaceful reign of Solomon who built the temple at Jerusalem. The 13 stars above the eagle s head represent Jacob and his 12 sons or tribes of Israel and form the star of David which reminds a Masons of King David s dream of building a temple which his son King Solomon finally realized.
