History of the Order
We are the Junior Order
We are the oldest patriotic fraternal organization formed in the United States. The Junior Order United American Mechanics is composed of American citizens of good moral character who believe in a Supreme Being as the Creator and Preserver of the Universe. The Junior Order is a non-sectarian (no religious preference), non-profit, patriotic organization. We oppose the union of church and state. We are Americans and we support democracy, freedom, and the right to worship as you choose. We believe that Legal Immigration is the only way to gain entry and remain in America to reap the benefits of our society. Our focus is to develop a higher standard of citizenship and national morality among our members and our country as a whole.
