An exploration of the influence of secret societies on the formative documents and symbols of the United States

• Reveals the Founding Fathers’ spiritual vision for America as encoded in the Great Seal

• Traces the influence of the Iroquois League of Nations upon the Constitution

• Exposes the deep connections the Founding Fathers had with the Freemasons and other secret societies

All children growing up in America learn who the Founding Fathers were. Most, however, never learn of the founders’ connections to the Freemasons, the Rosicrucians, and other esoteric orders. In Founding Fathers, Secret Societies Robert Hieronimus investigates these important connections and how their influence can be traced throughout our most significant national documents and symbols, especially the Great Seal. He reveals in detail how the reverse of the Great Seal--which appears on the back of the one-dollar bill--is a blueprint that conveys the secret destiny of America. By understanding the kabbalistic meaning of the Great Seal’s reverse, he shows how our current era presents unique opportunities for the fulfillment of our Founding Fathers’ spiritual vision.

This is the worst book that I have read in a long time. It had almost nothing to do with the Founding Fathers. It was all about some mystical properties that the Great Seal has, but only if we can use both sides. It was a complete waste of time. I would rate it lower than 1/2 star if I could.
