1 Utah's Black Hawk War

Peterson, John AltonNew, Utah State University Press, 1998, Logan, UT


Brand new softcover! ; "From 1863 to 1867, the warrior chief Black Hawk, also known as Antonga, led a combined force of Utes, Navajos, and Paiutes in a series of intense stock raids on the Mormon settlements in Utah territory. The antagonism of the government leaders in Washington toward Utah's polygamy, theocracy, and isolationism made Mormon leader Brigham Young wary of seeking any federal help--a reaction Black Hawk astutely anticipated. In fact, fearing the war would provide a pretext for sending more troops to Utah, the Mormons with-held information from the government. As directed by Young, Utah's Latter-day Saint citizens mobilized the church militia, the Nauvoo Legion, to repel Indian attachs. Bloodshed on both sides plunged Mormons and Indians into a war of vengeance; years of killing and raiding that continued until federal troops intervened in 1872..."; 6" x 9"; 432 pages,
