8/4/08: "Massacre at Mountain Meadows"
Salt Lake City, UT – Since the 1857 slaughter of more than 120 men, women and children at Mountain Meadows, Utah, questions about why a group of Mormons settlers killed an unarmed emigrant party and how much influence Brigham Young had in the attack have swirled around the incident. On Monday, Doug talks with historians Richard Turley, Glen Leonard and Ronald Walker about their new research and their conclusions presented in their forthcoming book "Massacre at Mountain Meadows."
There will be a reading and book signing of "Massacre at Mountain Meadows" Friday, August 8 at 7 p.m. at Ken Sanders Rare Books, 268 South 200 East, in Salt Lake City.
