William Morgan was born in 1774 in Batavia, New York and grew up to be anti-mason. Which opposed the way of the Freemason, a fraternal group within the United States that still exists today.
When Mason announced the book he was releasing, he was then arrested. Then, Freemasons kidnapped him. His disappearance was then presumed a murder in 1826.
When Morgan decided to write a book exposing the secrets of the Freemason world, a New York politician was inspired to create the Anti-Masonic Party. This party went against a president himself! This president was Andrew Jackson. While this was a party on the ballot in 1832, it went out the window by 1835.
Freemasons deny ever murdering William Morgan, as they claimed to have paid him $500 to leave the country. Others in numerous countries claimed to have seen this famous man, but none were ever confirmed. Three Freemasons were however convicted of his disappearance including Loton Lawon, Nicholas Chesebro and Edward Sawyer.
