This unique history of the Civil War considers the impact of nineteenth-century American secret societies on the path to and the course of the war. Beginning with the European secret societies that laid the groundwork for Freemasonry in the United States, Mark A. Lause analyzes how the Old World's traditions influenced various underground groups and movements in America, particularly George Lippard's Brotherhood of the Union, an American attempt to replicate the political secret societies that influenced the European Revolutions of 1848. _x000B_Lause traces the Brotherhood's various manifestations, including the Knights of the Golden Circle and the Confederate secret groups through which John Wilkes Booth and others attempted to undermine the Union. This book shows how these clandestine organizations exacerbated existing sectional tensions and may have played a key part in events such as John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, Lincoln's election, and the Southern secession process of 1860-1861.
