Dr. Richard E. Bennett is the Chair of the Department of Church History and Doctrine at BYU. We interviewed him this week in preparation for our new DVD entitled “War on the Saints.” He told us the story of the Battle of Nauvoo in 1846 where the last of the Latter-day Saints were driven from Nauvoo by Hancock county mobs. He taught us about the unspeakable desecrations of the Nauvoo Temple and of the sufferings and death brought upon the Saints in Iowa as a result of the persecutions in Iowa. It was a touching story. It will be in our new Documentary released Father’s Day 2014.
