On the balmy autumn day of October 30, 1838, in northern Missouri, a mob of some 200 mounted men attacked a small Latter-day Saint settlement called Hawn’s Mill. When it was over 17 were killed and 15 others were wounded. It was a tragedy unparalleled in Mormon history. These were innocent people swept up in a war not of their making or choosing. They were martyrs to their faith, dying for no other reason than that they were Latter-day Saints. This is their story—a story that today is too often filled with myth and historical inaccuracies. This beautifully illustrated book not only tells the story, but also paints the picture of the Hawn’s Mill Massacre sure to instruct and inspire.
