Perhaps the Masons’ most influential period was during the American Revolution. Of the masons no one was as influential as Benjamin Franklin. Although Benjamin Franklin was never president, general, or lawmaker he held great sway over political figures and Generals. Franklin was normally discreet about his being a Mason though he occasionally shared his sentiments to others. During his later life in France he was an active Mason and served as a Master of a lodge in Paris. The connections he made would later serve him in efforts to obtain economic and military aid for America during the revolution. In the 1787 Constitutional Convention, he played a major role in stabilizing thoughts of delegates in the development of the later constitution (Demott 20-22).
