The silver Masonic officers jewels stolen by Morgan’s Raiders from Versailles Lodge have been returned!
Well, that sounds a bit hyperbolic. They’ve actually been brought back to the Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana by the members of Versailles Lodge, who are once again loaning us their treasured artifact of the Civil War period for a brief time.
If you missed seeing them on display last year, be sure to stop by the Museum and take this opportunity now.
And if you don’t know the story of Morgan and his infamous raid across southern Indiana during the Civil War, or how and why these silver jewels were seized and returned, read about it here.
