Washington DC,

a city of secrets and intrigue.

The perfect setting for

"The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown.

The book takes us through a world

rarely seen in town ...

and investigates a mysterious

secret society.

I read that is a specific fantasy,

shown in great detail ...

and it's not only fantasy, but moved

conspiracy with the community ...

Dan Brown clearly and invests

this kind of people.

But Brown tells us the truth?

Or is just another Washington

of his fictional characters?

Explore the pages

"The Lost Symbol" ...

to separate fact from fiction.




In the book, the Capitol is

in the center of an unfolding mystery.

This is where the book's protagonist,

Professor Robert Langdon ...

begins its journey

and where we begin our analysis.

In the book, Langdon tells his students

the design of the Capitol ...

rooted in the oldest and largest

U.S. secret society ...



A Mason was important

a role in the planning.

The nation's first president,

George Washington.

Washington deserves

more credit than it receives ...

about the sighting

and disposition of Washington.

He approved the plans,

decided which would be used.

Decided that the building

should be in stone instead of brick.

Another factor mentioned in the book

is that the location of the Capitol ...

was chosen by a Frenchman,

the architect Pierre L'Enfant.

This is also true.

I assume that the original plan was to one day

England overcome ...

in all aspects,

and that everything would start there.

But Washington was

mainly tobacco plantations,

British diplomats and received

wages for serving tropical here ...

was considered a difficult position


And when L'Enfant was trying to figure

the appearance of the city ...

he called the hill

"Pedestal waiting for a monument."

And while L'Enfant did not

designed the Capitol ...

he chose his place ...

and Washington where it was agreed

should be the U.S. Capitol.

In the book, Professor Langdon

surprises his students ...

saying that George Washington planted

the cornerstone of the Capitol ...

in a Masonic ceremony



the book is correct.

On the morning of

September 18, 1793 ...

President Washington

led a procession to the site.

There, wearing an apron

strange--looking ...

he led the day's events.

Traditional Masonic Items

were then presented ...

as corn

and jars of olive oil and wine.

And with that, the cornerstone

Capitol was stuck.

What is not in the book

is the fact that today ...

the cornerstone

is missing.

The board is all that remains.

The Masonic origins of the building

were hidden?

In Itima decade, several people

working on Capitol Hill ...

led metal detectors

the basement ...

to try to find

the metal plate ...

indicating where

was the original cornerstone.

But never found the plate,

and the best guess is that ...

during construction in 1960 ...

when the entire eastern front

Capitol was moved ...

may have destroyed the foundation stone

original, not knowing what was there.
