1 Civil War Saints

Alford, Kenneth L. (editor)New in New Dust Jacket, Deseret Book, 2012, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new hardcover book! ; This timely volume begins with a detailed timeline that provides an excellent summary of U.S. and Utah Territory events associated with the war. The authors outline how the Utah War (1857-58) directly affected the Civil War, explore the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and the Mormons, and explain the history and use of Joseph Smith's "Civil War Prophecy." The authors share Civil War comments and correspondence by nineteenth-century Latter-day Saint Church leaders, recount the ninety-day active duty military service of the Lot Smith Utah Cavalry Company (Utah Territory's only direct military contribution to the Civil War), and discuss the Nauvoo Legion's service in Utah during the war. The writers tell the story of the establishment of Camp Douglas near Salt Lake City in 1862, describe LDS wartime emigration, review how Northern and Southern newspapers viewed Utah and Mormon throughout the war, consider settler and Indian relations, and examine the January 1862 Indian massacre at Bear River.

Additionally, readers will find the reasons that motivated Mormons to enlist as Union and Confederate soldiers, the impact of the war's aftermath on Latter-day Saints, Mormon participation in the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), and the GAR's 1909 National Encampment in Salt Lake City. The book is also richly illustrated with period photographs and images.
