Freemasons, both northern and southern, were forced to choose a side and go against the very foundation of the society of freemasonry. Despite all their differences, masons continued to practice their principles of brotherly love and good will on the battlefield, thus proving that the men who joined the order would not, under any circumstances, sever their bonds of Masonic unity.
