Sorry, wrong date. It was formed in 1832 at Yale.

I've owned the movie Skulls for a long time. Always thought it was a cheesy movie. Now, I'm watching it again for the first time in a couple years.
There is a part in the movie where the newly made Bonesman asks what the letters WAR meant that are on the wall of the S&B ritual room. The senator responded with "Those who wish to be our leaders choose the ordeal of War to prove themselves worthy of the priveledge."
"What if we are at peace" asked the young Bonesman
"There are always wars to be fought." replied the senator.
I know this is simply a line in a movie, but it does make a great deal of sense. Is the word WAR actually on the S&B ritual room wall? I am to believe it is, and that it's meaning is what has been explained in the movie. This being the reason why we go to war everytime a US President is a Bonesman.
I guess the way to test this is to find out, if the next President is a Bonesman, do we go to War with someone else?
My bet is, if the next president isn't a bonesman, the war will stop and our troops will probably come home. If he is a bonesman, the fighting will continue either in Iraq or another will begin elsewhere.
It makes more sense now why Kerry, also a Bonesman was put in place to go against Bush last election. It was the certainty that the war would continue...
Making much sense now.

Guess again! Reading a little goes a long way. Educate yourself.
Secrets of the Tomb Alexandra Robbins (Current Skull and Bones Member!)
Excerpt from article:
New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Robbins is a journalist who was formerly on the Washington, DC staff of The New Yorker magazine. She has written for a variety of publications, including The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, The Washington Post, USA Today, Cosmopolitan, Mademoiselle, Chicago Tribune, Self, Washington Monthly, Time Digital, Salon, PC, Travel & Leisure, Tennis Week (a guest column defending Anna Kournikova's beauty), and the Journal of Popular Culture. She is the co-author of the book Quarterlife Crisis: The Unique Challenges of Life In Your Twenties. Robbins is currently at work on her third book, a look into a different kind of secret organization.
Excerpt from Book:
Skull and Bones is in its quest to create a New World Order that restricts individual freedoms and places ultimate power solely in the hands of a small cult of wealthy, prominent families, Skull and Bones has already succeeded in infiltrating nearly every major research, policy, financial, media, and government institution in the country. Skull and Bones, in fact, has been running the United States for years.
During initiation, which involves ritualistic psychological conditioning, the juniors wrestle in mud and are physically beaten - this stage of the ceremony represents their "death" to the world as they have known it. They then lie naked in coffins, masturbate, and reveal to the society their innermost sexual secrets. After this cleansing, the Bonesmen give the initiates robes to represent their new identities as individuals with a higher purpose. The society anoints the initiate with a new name, symbolizing his rebirth and re-christening as Knight X, a member of The Order.
Why have they spoken to me over the past 3 years? Perhaps because I am a member of one of Skull and Bones' kindred Yale secret societies. (Alexandra Robbins)
Please check out the information in the website enclosed. The book deserves a good read.
Also note that women have finally been accepted to join the Brotherhood of Death. So I don't want any "only men are allowed to join" ignorance.
Skull & Bones was one of the last of the societies to admit women

In the "tomb" they found lodge-room 324 "fitted up in black velvet, even the walls being covered with the material." Upstairs was lodge-room 322, "the 'sanctum sanctorium' of the temple... furnished in red velvet" with a pentagram on the wall. In the hall are "pictures of the founders of Bones at Yale, and of members of the Society in Germany, when the chapter was established here in 1832." The raiding party found another interesting scene in the parlor next to room 322. From "The Fall Of Skull And Bones": "On the west wall, hung among other pictures, an old engraving representing an open burial vault, in which, on a stone slab, rest four human skulls, grouped about a fools cap and bells, an open book, several mathematical instruments, a beggar's scrip, and a royal crown. On the arched wall above the vault are the explanatory words, in Roman letters, 'We War Der Thor, Wer Weiser, Wer Bettler Oder, Kaiser?' and below the vault is engraved, in German characters, the sentence; 'Ob Arm, Ob Beich, im Tode gleich.' The picture is accompanied by a card on which is written, 'From the German Chapter. Presented by D. C. Gilman of D. 50'."
