Real Lessons of Brotherhood

On April 13-16, 2013 Boy Scout Troop 151 of West Boylston MA, newly chartered by the West Boylston Masonic Charity and Education Association (Boylston Lodge), travelled to the Gettysburg National Military Park for a long weekend of hiking, education, and fun.  In attendance were 10 scouts and 6 adults, including 2 brothers from Boylston Lodge.  A great time was had by all.  

Pictured is Union General Winfield Scott Hancock and Confederate General Lewis Addison Armistead who were personal friends and members of the Masonic Fraternity.  The Gettysburg Masonic Memorial erected by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania to honor Masons of both the North and South who, despite their political differences, never forgot their obligations to each other.
