In reference to: "The other major appendant body is York Rite. There are
no overall York Rite jurisdictions as their are for the Scottish Rite.
Each Grand Lodge has a corresponding York Rite grand body." on your web
You are in error to omit the Grand Encampment, Knight Templar, USA.

I apologize for not giving you further information as to what I was
referring to. It was in your letter of the Month. http://mit.edu/dryfoo/Masonry/Letters/letter0105.html
By the way, I truly like your website as it is very informative.
The Ancient Craft (Blue Lodge through Council) is sovereign unto
themselves and each has a governing body within state boarders or
jurisdictions. Chapter and Council have, also, Grand Chapter
International and Grand Council International, but they are voluntary
groups that provide information to the Local Grand Jurisdictions.
The Christian Orders of Templary are governed by the Grand Encampment,
USA, with a Most Eminent Grand Master at its head. The term of election
is three years. There are then several Departments that divide the
country into regions with a Department Commander (or Deputy of the ME
Grand Commander) reporting to Grand Encampment. I will use the Northwest
Department as an example: This department consists of Alaska,
Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Wyoming for which the Department
Commander is accountable.
Enough for now, It's been a please corresponding with you.
