General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War, with 2nd son William Henry Fitzhugh Lee circa 1845, displays the Sign of the Master of the Second Veil. General Ulysses S. Grant, Commanding General of the United States Army, known also as the Union Army during the American Civil War, also displays the Sign of the Master of the Second Veil. The sign, known colloquially as the “Hidden Hand” is used in the York Rite Masonry’s 7th degree, otherwise known as the Royal Arch Degree. Freemasons in the Blue Lodge learn that the name of God has been lost and learn a substitute name, MAHABONE. Subsequently, Royal arch Masons learn that the name has not been lost after all and that the Masonic god is named JAH-BUL-ON, or YAH-BAAL-ON, with each syllable representing one of their god’s three identities: Yahweh, Baal, and Osiris. Freemasons do not wish for the general public to know the name of their god, and that “the name and identity of the hidden god must be concealed at all costs, and thus an appropriate hand sign has been devised to represent this coverup: the Sign of the Hidden Hand.”
