About this Item

[14], 317, [5] p. Notes. Index. From Wikipedia: "The Mountain Meadows massacre was a series of attacks on the Baker Fancher emigrant wagon train at Mountain Meadows in southern Utah. The attacks culminated on September 11, 1857, with the mass slaughter of most in the emigrant party by members of the Utah Territorial Militia from the Iron County district, together with some Paiute Native Americans. The militia, officially called the Nauvoo Legion, was composed of Utah's Mormon settlers (members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or LDS Church). During the militia's first assault on the wagon train, the emigrants fought back and a five-day siege ensued. Eventually fear spread among the militia that emigrants had caught sight of white men and had discovered the identity of the attackers. Militia commander Dame ordered his force to kill the emigrants. The Militia killed the adults and older children (totaling about 120 men, women, and children). Seventeen children, all younger than seven, were spared." Very good in good dust jacket. DJ has some wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. Some edge soiling. Bookseller Inventory # 70436
