Nice post. Many of the stories we have heard around the dinner table concerning Masonic fraternization during warfare are, in fact, verifiable, from the War of Independence, through Napoleon's campaigns, the Crimea, WWI, and of course the American Civil War.

It remains possible, as you suggest, that they were part of the process of reconciliation post-1865, but nearly all of these incidents are so individual and personal in nature, that I have not arrived at how one might prove that to be the case.

But it is a very interesting question, and I enjoyed reading your thoughts on the matter.
