Reviewing the Missouri agitation surrounding the relocation of the Saints into the swampy bogs of Commerce, Illinois, through its transformation into Nauvoo 'the Beautiful, ' the reader is led through petitions for redress to the federal government for previous losses in Missouri. This book also includes; the intrigue of John C. Bennett; the introduction of plural marriage; blame for the attempted assassination of Missouri's governor; the several local and state events surrounding the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith; and the subsequent transition of Church leadership to the Twelve Apostles. This is one of the most complete historical accounts of the Nauvoo Period (1840-1846) - a critical era in Church development. " ; 5" x 8"; 457 pages; 193067922X
