War on the Saints: The Story of a Persecuted People


The question is often asked, “I wonder who has endured more for the Gospel, the pioneers or us today?” While that question has no easy answer, this new book from History of the Saints explains in great detail just what it cost those early Latter-day Saints to be true to the faith. Numerous scholars explain in detail what the saints endured for their faith in the early days in New York, in Kirtland, In Missouri, in Nauvoo, the journey west, the Utah War, and finally the great war on the saints because of polygamy. This book will open the eyes of the reader to what life was really like for a 19th century Mormon.
