On October 18th, 2011 (the one-hundred year anniversary of the original cornerstone’s laying), the Grand Lodge of the Disctrict of Columbia with help from the Grand Lodges of Maryland and Virginia re-enacted the Masonic cornerstone ceremony of 1911.
On this episode, we bring you the audio of this event, interspesed with color commentary from Ill. S. Brent Morris, 33*, Grand Cross, the Managing editor of The Scottish Rite Journal and author of Cornerstones of Freedom, a book about the history and traditions of Masonic cornerstone ceremonies.
