Anniversary of the Morgan Affair

On this date, September 13th, in 1826, William Morgan disappeared in Batavia, New York, after threatening to expose the "secrets" of Freemasonry. He was never found. His disappearance ignited the most intense and prolonged period of anti-Masonic sentiment in the U.S., along with the first third-party political movement.
