9 Feb 1854, Philadelphia Journalist writer George Lippard died.


George Lippard was but 30 yrs old, and had, in 1849, created and wrote the manual for
the Brotherhood of the Union. It was not a Union in the modern sense of
the word, but did have death and burial benefits for members and their families.
It was modeled after the “Free and Accepted Masons”. In 1848 he had lost to death
his wife and infant child. The symbols of the Brotherhood were carved in stone and
exist on his grave(moved to Rockledge, Montgomery County (barely north of Cheltenham
township).
