arrival. The group immediately went behind closed doors. A short time
later Lyndon, anxious and red-faced, reappeared... Squeezing my hand so
hard, it felt crushed from the pressure, he spoke with a grating
whisper, a quiet growl, into my ear, not a love message, but one I'll
always remember: "After tomorrow those goddamn Kennedys will never
embarrass me again - that's no threat - that's a promise.".

Up to that time, the North had faced
a series of crushing defeats and no significant victories--
e.g. The Battle of Bull Run in July of 1861, and the first
great battle, Shiloh, in April of 1862. Pictured

By 1870, the active militia numbered over 30,000 to defend
against "threats" from the United States.

factions in England and America hoped to use this incident as a pretext

strong enough to ignore the Union blockade of the South, this

The Blockade Runners
A British blockade runner. They were the fastest vessels of their
day, and arrived "with the regularity of express trains." They
timed their departures to arrive at night, their most common route from
English colonies in Nassau (the Bahamas) and Bermuda; traveling directly
to their destination, Confederate ports. "At the beginning of the war the
Union blockade of Southern ports was not effective, because
the North lacked ships to make it so. Blockade-runners,
mainly British, made fortunes by landing cargoes of munitions
and scarce goods at Southern ports... "Although the
Confederacy had no navy, it still found ways to cripple
Northern commerce. In spite of its lack of shipyards,
it managed to equip a number of ships for service at sea.
It also ordered the construction or purchase of other
ships in England. Over the protests of the Union government,
three English-built ships, the Florida, the Alabama, and
the Shenandoah, were delivered to Confederate naval officers
and given the task of destroying the U.S. merchant fleet.
These three raiders alone inflicted damage estimated at
$16.6 million on Union shipping. The loss, while serious,
was trivial in comparison to the effect of the Union blockade
on the Southern economy..."
Since the beginning of
the war, the Confederacy had had a naval officer, James
D. Bulloch, in Britain to buy or contract for cruisers
to raid Northern commerce. In 1861 and 1862, Bulloch had
managed to acquire and equip several Confederate ships.

to supply warships and arms to the I.R.A. today, in equal

November 8, 1861, some seven months into the Civil War, Union Captain
Charles Wilkes stopped the British ship Trent and arrested two Confederate
ambassadors who had just slipped the Union blockade of Cuba. The
prisoners, James Murray Mason (Britain) and John
Slidell (France), were commissioned by the Confederacy to secure
British and French aid. Officially none came. But in truth aid did
come, from Britain, not just through arms and money; nor in their
mockery of US naval blockade of the South, but through London and
the Scottish Rite. This aid included the planning and concealment
of the Lincoln assassination by an Anglo-American coalition of Masonic
In the Trent Affair, the reaction
of the French and British differed considerably. It was the height
of the Britain empire, and she was eager to capitalize on the event
as an act of war at a time she knew the United States was critically
divided. Seizing the opportunity, the British demanded an apology
and the release of the two ambassadors. They did in fact threaten
and mobilize for outright war over the incident. Likewise, because
Captain Wilkes had become a hero in the Union partisans called for
war against England.
President Lincoln, however,
"cheerfully liberated" them after careful deliberation, and
Britain agreed to accept Lincoln’s assurance that Captain Wilkes acted
without authority in lieu of an apology. In this way, Lincoln is said to
have averted a fatal conflict with Britain. But did he really?
The War of 1812 grew from the
practice of impressment, or the seizure of American
seamen for service in the British navy. The British government claimed
that it only seized subjects of the Crown who sailed under the American
flag to avoid wartime service in their own navy. But in fact, the
British seized not only their own deserters, but also impressed a
sizeable number of United States citizens—estimates suggest 6000 or
Affair, the British would disingenuously cite the practice of
impressment against its own citizens and likewise
threaten war over the capture of two Scottish Rite ambassadors, John
Slidell and James Murry Mason, who hoped to enlist European aid for the
Confederacy. These two prisoners, however, were not British
citizens. They were Southerners. The Union captain who
boarded the Trent did not subject any British citizen to
impressment, let alone naval service for the Union. Yet it was
acted upon as such.
James Madison declared war on Britain, it was vehemently opposed by
Scottish Rite's political apparatus in the North, the Federalists.
The reason cited was a fear that such a war would severely harm American
trade. The Federalists, who were pro-British, actually
led an opposition to the war that was so strong in New England that the
governors of Massachusetts and Connecticut refused to call up their
militia in response to President Madison's request for troops.
By late 1814, delegates
from the New England states, dissatisfied with the handling of the war,
had met at the Hartford Convention in Connecticut (December 14,
1814-January 5, 1815). This group, which was dominated by disgruntled
members of the Federalist political party, was reported to have
formulated demands that amounted to a dissolution of the Union.
Ironically, this dissolution of the Union was decided upon after
the War of 1812 ended with
a peace treaty negotiated in Ghent, Belgium, and signed on December 24,

already ended the war, and just three days after the Hartford
Convention adjourned, an outnumbered Andrew Jackson dealt a crushing
blow to British forces in New Orleans on January 8, 1814.

of the convention took place behind closed doors, and because the
members were pledged to absolute secrecy that is the hallmark of
Scottish Rite freemasonry, word spread

from the Union. This irreparably damaged the reputation of the Federalist
Party, already in disfavor because of its pro-British, aristocratic
ideologies. The party did not survive the presidential election

Revolution) the true Druidic origins of freemasonry are hidden from lower

American lodges were initially the meetings places for patriots leading the

After the Civil War, when
Andrew Johnson assumed power, the
Scottish Rite had its first American president. But he was also suspect in
Lincoln's murder, and it was a major cause of the impeachment of Johnson.
Shamelessly, however, many in the Scottish Rite count patriots like George
Washington among their own, when their forebears fought against Washington in
the Revolutionary War! Not only then, but also in the War of 1812.

Saturday, December 21, 1861
Last week it seemed difficult to obtain
attention for any subject save that of the American crisis. "Who can
tell what a day may bring forth?" Today, in the presence of the heavy
affliction with which it has pleased the Almighty and Inscrutable to
visit our beloved Sovereign and the nation, even the solemn situation in
which we have been placed by the piratical act of the Americans is
momentarily disregarded while we seek to realize the sudden sorrow. But
the record of the week must be duly completed.
President Lincoln's Message, as a
composition, is conceived in the same low moral tone and executed with
the same maladroitness which have characterized the preceding State
Papers of his Government. But such considerations are of small
importance compared with the indications of policy afforded by the
document. There is no mention of the Trent outrage.
From this circumstance, and from a
meaningless declaration that the President does not desire hostilities
with England, some sanguine writers have hastened to assume that the act
of Captain Wilks will be disavowed, and the Southern Commissioners
handed over to us. It is urged that Mr. Lincoln did not deem the act of
the American Captain as worthy of notice in the Message, or that it is
one upon which England has but to express her feeling to obtain
And this view is supported by reference
to the fact that an actual wrong to British subjects is mentioned, and
Congress is recommended to make compensation. We should be too happy to
believe that so wise a course was that designed for adoption by the
American Government, but we are afraid to resign ourselves to so
agreeable a hope.
It contradicts the general expression of
that part of the American public which makes itself heard, and which
exercises a fatal control over the so-called government of the American
press (with one or two honourable exceptions), and of the American
Secretary of State. The House of Representatives has deliberately
offered a vote of thanks to the pirate Wilks; and though it is
technically true that this is not precisely the same thing as a vote of
our House of Commons, it is equally true, and more to the purpose, that
the House of Representatives expresses the sentiments of those who, to
the disgrace of the higher classes in the States, are permitted to
engross political power.
In the face of all these demonstrations,
to say nothing of an official utterance by the head of the Federal Navy,
we dare scarcely believe that the despatch of Earl Russell will receive
the only answer which we can accept. Still we have only to wait and
hear. Our next Impression will, in all probability, contain the expected
intelligence. The news regarding the struggle between the North and
South merely states that General McClellan has not moved, "nor will he
move until he is certain to win" -- a somewhat indefinite date. We learn
with something akin to disgust that the barbarous reprisal system is
likely to come into effect, that prisoners are being cruelly treated,
and may be actually executed in cold blood -- facts which reduce a war
to an abominable brigandage. The North, in its excess of zeal for
civilization, is also elaborately destroying harbours in the South, thus
by savage acts giving the lie to the profession of belief that the
territory to which the harbours belong will ever again be a portion of
the Federal dominions
