The Utah Expedition of 1857-58 was one of the strange episodes of American history. Misunderstanding, suspicion, and malice all contributed to create a situation that led to the sending of a military expedition against the Mormons and almost culminated in a tragic bloody war. The story of that expedition, the reactions to it, the Mormon measures of resistance, and the heroic efforts that ultimately brought reconciliation, are the subject matter of this volume. The presentation is documentary, with the actors in the drama each speaking his part and exhibiting his emotional reactions.
