In the 19th century, Captain William Morgan, a member of the Royal Arch Degree within Freemasonry, took a bold stance. He pledged to unveil the hidden oaths and rituals of the Masonic Lodge, even though this challenged his own binding blood oath as a Freemason. This audacious mission led to a dramatic turn of events – certain Freemasons kidnapped & murdered him in an attempt to suppress his revelations. After Captain William Morgan's death, his manuscripts were reportedly handed over to David C. Miller, a former Mason who had turned against the organization. Miller, along with another Anti-Masonic activist named Henry L. Valance, worked to compile and publish Morgan's writings as a book titled "Illustrations of Masonry." This book, containing Morgan's exposé of Freemasonry, was published in 1826, a year after Morgan's disappearance and presumed death. It played a significant role in further fueling the Anti-Masonic sentiment and the growth of the Anti-Masonic movement in the United States.
" Sacred to the memory of Wm. Morgan, a native of Virginia, a Capt. in the War of 1812, a respectable citizen of Batavia, and a martyr to the freedom of writing, printing, and speaking the truth. He was abducted from near this spot in the year 1826, by Freemasons and murdered for revealing the secrets of their order."
