First District Brothers; June 1863
The Confederate Army of General Robert E. Lee is fast approaching Wrightsville, intent upon claiming Lancaster County as a spoil of war. All available militia units have repaired to the banks of the Susquehanna where they stand to repel the invasion. There are no soldiers left to guard the residence of our late President, the Honorable Worshipful Brother James Buchanan, PM.
Lodge No 43, Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania, will hold an unofficial meeting (and family picnic) on the grounds of Wheatland, the home of Worshipful Brother Buchanan at the corner of President and Marietta Avenues west of Lancaster City where we will stand guard over our Past Master and Past District Deputy Grand Master.
