CD: Official History of the Improved Order of Red Men


Compiled under Authority from the Great Council of the United States by Past Great Incohonees George W. Lindsay of Maryland, Charles C. Conley of Pennsylvania, Charles H. Litchman of Massachusetts

The Order of Red Men takes pride in preserving the history, customs and virtues of the original American people - a people conceded by the early travelers and writers to have been intelligent, brave, and free, loyal in its friendships, generous in its hospitalities, and with many traits of character worthy of emulation…" "The primary objects of our Order are to promote among men the exercise and practice of the true principles of benevolence and charity, the care and protection of the widows and orphans of its members, and the cultivation of friendly relations with those who have entered its circle. The democratic influences which attended its birth, the idea that all men are equal, are the tenets of the Order; and what a man is, not what he possesses, constitutes his claim for recognition among the brotherhood. Friendship, fraternity, and hospitality are exemplified as cardinal virtues, and nowhere are hearts brought closer together than around the council fires of the Red Men…Our Order is a brotherhood of individuals whose personal characteristics are not sacrificed, but whose common interests are maintained and strengthened as the members harmonize around our council fires." A subject, place and everyname index makes access to information easy for the researcher.
