The 18th century gave its fair share of tycoons into the blackmarket one of which was an American named William Huntington Russell, who was involved in the Chinese opium trade. Moreover, Russell strategized an infamous way to protect his business and that was by means of originating a tax-free foundation. In this Russell Trust made use of opium reserves, which led to the deep-rooted teachings of Skull and Bones. Furthermore, in 1832, Skull and Bones was started at the Yale University. In addition, there were chances that both US Presidential candidates would happen to be alliances of Skull and Bones at an approximate ratio of 1: 750,000.
Apparently, Prescott Bush, father of George H.W. Bush and grandfather to George W. Bush were all associates of the hidden chapter. It was also purported by the members that Prescott Bush stole the skull and bones of Indian Chief Goyathlay and secured it in a tomb for spiritual influence. His grandson, George W. Bush never admitted guilt. Lastly, as the younger Bush rose to power, he appointed some of his fellow bonesman, to positions of power in the US Government.
