Fact of the Day: Freemason Presidents

In the course of our American history, 14 presidents (and other presidents who tried to join) have been members of the Freemasons. The presidents include George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Howard Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Gerald Ford. The Freemasons are a fraternal organization dating back to 1390 or earlier.
