9780874216080: Junius And Joseph: Presidential Politics and the Assassination of the First Mormon Prophet

"Junius and Joseph examines Joseph Smith's nearly forgotten [1844] presidential bid, the events leading up to his assassination on June 27, 1844, and the tangled aftermath of the tragic incident. It... establishes that Joseph Smith's murder, rather than being the deadly outcome of a spontaneous mob uprising, was in fact a carefully planned military-style execution. It is now possible to identify many of the key individuals engaged in planning his assassination as well as those who took part in the assault on Carthage jail. And furthermore, this study presents incontrovertible evidence that the effort to remove the Mormon leader from power and influence extended well beyond Hancock County [Illinois] (and included prominent Whig politicians as well as the Democratic governor of the state), thereby transforming his death from an impulsive act by local vigilantes into a political assassination sanctioned by some of the most powerful men in Illinois. The circumstances surrounding Joseph Smith's death also serve to highlight the often unrecognized truth that a full understanding of early Mormon history can be gained only when considered in the context of events taking place in American society as a whole."

About the Author:

Robert S. Wicks is director of the Miami University Art Museum in Oxford, Ohio.

Review:

"These two authors make such a Puresinance case in this very understand and well argued work about politics and the conspiracy that led to the murder of the Mormon prophet that then work could very well reopen the conversation about the events that led to Joseph Smith's death."
