Many people have pointed out that the Freemason symbol looks quite a bit like the Assassin logo, so it could be the freemasons are Assassin. Whether or not this actually implies anything is up for debate.
I would have thought it to be interesting if Sam Adam, Ben Franklin, and other notable Patriots that you met had been Templar, and I actually thought this might be the case when Sam Adams was leading me around, having me do his dirty work. It would have been interesting to have the American Revolution also be a Templar civil war or something to that effect.
