Mormon Resistance, Paperback (November 2005)
In 1857 President Buchanan quietly sent new officials to rule the Utah Territory and replace Brigham Young as the territorial governor. The leaders were accompanied by a 2500-member troop under the leadership of Col Albert Sidney Johnston. This book contains official documents pertaining to these singular and nearly tragic events.
Handcarts to Zion, Paperback (April 1992)View all books by LeRoy R. Hafen
It is unparalleled in history, the procession of Latter-Day Saints pushing handcarts from Iowa City and Florence (Omaha) to their promised Zion by the Great Salt Lake. Describing the migration, this work draws on diaries and reports of the participants, rosters of the ten companies, and a collection of the songs sung on the trail.
