1. Anti-Masons a. September 1826- Chanadegwa, NY i. County Jail with stone mason William Morgan - Native of VA came north looking for work, and tried to join local Masonic lodge. Mason memberships were booming- White robes, mysterious symbols, books, Masonic aprons and tools, secret aspects in meetings. Memberships were closed, only open by invitation. Once in, you could precede up the hierarchy. Morgan claimed he was a mason, and wanted to join the local lodge. The lodge not only for brotherhood and friendship, but more importantly it was thought to be a good way to make connections and advance in your line of work. Masons were supposed to help each other out as much as they could. They became pretty powerful. All Presidents so far were masons. If you wanted to be successful, it was a good thing to find connections because the US economy was moving from Artisan to Industry. New factories began to be created ii. In 1824, the completion of Clinton’s Folly (Erie Canal) created a boom economy in Upstate NY. All along canal and feeder canals, prosperity and movement were created in this area.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
