The Oldest Travelling Military Lodge in the World
Star Masonic Lodge No. 322 I.C.
The Warrant No. 322 from the
Grand Lodge of Ireland, dated 3rd May 1759 was issued for
a Masonic Lodge in the British 29th Regiment of Foot. The
Glittering Star Travelling Masonic Lodge is still closely
associated with the Regiment.
During the Boston Massacre in 1768 the 29th along with the
14th Regiment of Foot were sent to Boston, Massachusetts,
where, on the evening of March 5, men of the 29th Grenadier
Company under the command of Captain Thomas Preston took
part in the Boston Massacre in which five colonists died
during a riot in front of the Boston customs house. Due
to the incident, the regiment earned the nickname the "Vein
Openers" for drawing first blood in the American Revolution.
