Season 6 Episode 22 The Martyrdom at Hawn's Mill


This is the story of the massacre and martyrdom of the saints at Hawn’s Mill, Missouri, October 30, 1838.


It was one of the worst atrocities in Mormon history, and when considering the descendants of those who once lived here, it is a story too often critically misunderstood. This episode of History of the Saints is about the Hawn’s Mill Massacre. David Lewis who was there said this of the account he left for his family.
