Albert Pike Letter to Mazzini
The Illuminati Plan for 3 World Wars, August 15, 1871
The following is a letter, that speculation claimed that Albert Pike wrote to Giuseppe Mazzini in
1871 regarding a conspiracy involving three world wars, that were planned in an attempt to take
over the world. The Pike letter to Giuseppe Mazzini was on display in the British Museum Library
in London until 1977. This letter has been claimed by many internet sites to reside in the British
Library in London, which denies the letter exists.
• Giuseppe Mazzini was an Italian revolutionary leader of the mid 1800s as well as the
Director of the Illuminati
• Albert Pike (historical Masonic figure) was a 33rd degree Freemason, Occultist, Grand
Master and creator of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Masonic Scottish Rite Order
Following are apparently extracts from the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been
planned for many generations.
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the
power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The
divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic
Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used
in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the
Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and
that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine.
During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to
balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we
would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the
“agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The
war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism
(the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.
Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the
point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion… We shall unleash the
Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror
will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most
Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of
revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned
with christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction,
anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light
through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public
This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the
destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”Albert Pike’s Biography
extract from Wikipedia:
Early life and education:
Pike was born in Boston, Massachusetts, son of Ben
and Sarah (Andrews) Pike, and spent his childhood
in Byfield and Newburyport, Massachusetts.
His colonial ancestors included John Pike (1613-
1688/1689), the founder of Woodbridge, New
Jersey. He attended school in Newburyport and
Framingham until he was fifteen. In August 1825,
he passed his entrance exams and was accepted at
Harvard University, though when the college
requested payment of tuition fees for the first two
years, he chose not to attend.
He began a program of self-education, later
becoming a schoolteacher in Gloucester, North
Bedford, Fairhaven and Newburyport.
In 1831, Pike left Massachusetts to travel west, first
stopping in St. Louis and later moving on to
Independence, Missouri. In Independence, he joined an expedition to Taos, New Mexico, hunting
and trading. During the excursion his horse broke and ran, forcing Pike to walk the remaining 500
miles to Taos. After this he joined a trapping expedition to the Llano Estacado in New Mexico and
Trapping was minimal and, after traveling about 1300 miles (650 on foot), he finally arrived at Fort
Smith, Arkansas. Settling in Arkansas in 1833, he taught school and wrote a series of articles for the
Little Rock Arkansas Advocate under the pen name of “Casca.”
The articles were popular enough that he was asked to join the staff of the newspaper. Later, after
marrying MaryAnn Hamilton, he purchased part of the newspaper with the dowry. By 1835, he was
the Advocate’s sole owner. Under Pike’s administration the Advocate promoted the viewpoint of the
Whig party in a politically volatile and divided Arkansas.
He was the first reporter for the Arkansas Supreme Court. He wrote a book (published
anonymously), titled The Arkansas Form Book, which was a guidebook for lawyers. Pike began to
study law and was admitted to the bar in 1837, selling the Advocate the same year.
When the Mexican–American War started, Pike joined the Regiment of Arkansas Mounted
Volunteers (a cavalry regiment) and was commissioned as a troop commander with the rank of
captain in June 1846. With his regiment, he fought in the Battle of Buena Vista. Pike was
discharged in June 1847. He and his commander, Colonel John Selden Roane, had several
differences of opinion. This situation led finally to an “inconclusive” duel between Pike and Roane
on July 29, 1847, near Fort Smith, Arkansas. Although several shots were fired in the duel, nobody
was injured, and the two were persuaded by their seconds to discontinue it.After the war, Pike returned to the practice of law, moving to New Orleans for a time beginning in
1853. He wrote another book, “Maxims of the Roman Law and Some of the Ancient French Law, as
Expounded and Applied in Doctrine and Jurisprudence.”
American Civil War:
In 1861, Pike penned the lyrics to “Dixie to Arms!” At the beginning of the war, Pike was appointed
as Confederate envoy to the Native Americans. In this capacity he negotiated several treaties, one of
the most important being with Cherokee chief John Ross, which was concluded in 1861. At the
time, Ross agreed to support the Confederacy, which promised the tribes a Native American state if
it won the war. Ross later changed his mind and left Indian Territory, but the succeeding Cherokee
government maintained the alliance.
Pike was commissioned as a brigadier general on November 22, 1861, and given a command in the
Indian Territory. With Gen. Ben McCulloch, Pike trained three Confederate regiments of Indian
cavalry, most of whom belonged to the “civilized tribes”, whose loyalty to the Confederacy was
variable. Although initially victorious at the Battle of Pea Ridge (Elkhorn Tavern) in March 1862,
Pike’s unit was defeated later in a counterattack, after falling into disarray. When Pike was ordered
in May 1862 to send troops to Arkansas, he resigned in protest. As in the previous war, Pike came
into conflict with his superior officers, at one time drafting a letter to Jefferson Davis complaining
about his direct superior.
After Pea Ridge, Pike was faced with charges that his Native American troops had scalped soldiers
in the field. Maj. Gen. Thomas C. Hindman also charged Pike with mishandling of money and
material, ordering his arrest. Both these charges were later found to be considerably lacking in
evidence; nevertheless Pike, facing arrest, escaped into the hills of Arkansas, sending his resignation
from the Confederate States Army on July 12. He was at length arrested on November 3 under
charges of insubordination and treason, and held briefly in Warren, Texas. His resignation was
accepted on November 11, and he was allowed to return to Arkansas.
Pike first joined the fraternal Independent Order of Odd Fellows in 1840. He next joined a Masonic
Lodge, where he became extremely active in the affairs of the organization. In 1859 he was elected
Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite’s Southern Jurisdiction. He remained Sovereign
Grand Commander for the remainder of his life (a total of thirty-two years), devoting a large
amount of his time to developing the rituals of the order. Notably, he published a book called
Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in 1871, of which
there were several subsequent editions. This helped the order grow during the nineteenth century.
He also researched and wrote the seminal treatise Indo-Aryan Deities and Worship as Contained in
the Rig-Veda. In America, Pike is still considered an eminent and influential Freemason, primarily
in the Scottish Rite Southern Jurisdiction.
Death and legacy:
Pike died in Washington, D.C., at the age of 81, and was buried at Oak Hill Cemetery. Burial was
against his wishes; he had left instructions for his body to be cremated. In 1944, his remains were
moved to the House of the Temple, headquarters of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite. A
memorial to Pike is located in the Judiciary Square neighborhood of Washington, D.C. He is the
only Confederate military officer with an outdoor statue in Washington, D.C.
