Ric Berman's 'From Roanoke to Raleigh' rewrites the history of North Carolina freemasonry with implications for our understanding of American freemasonry as a whole. Beginning with the colony's early royal governors, Berman walks the reader from the inception of North Carolina's first Masonic lodges in the mid-eighteenth century to the years that followed the Declaration of Independence, the formation of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina, and the foundation of the University of North Carolina. The book allows the reader to examine newly revealed evidence and lay to rest past Masonic myths.
