Sunday Talk Show: Will Bagley, M. M. Massacre, Utah War etc.

This ought to be particularly interesting now that a draft of the
church's "Tragedy at Mountain Meadows" book has been circulated and
reviewed by some historians. The church's book counters Bagley's
thesis that circumstantial evidence indicates that Brigham Young
ordered the massacre. It will be interesting to hear Bagley's
Mormon Miscellaneous
World-Wide Talk Show

Date: Sunday, 3 June 2007

Subject: My guest will be Will Bagley, independent historian and
columnist. His book, Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Young and the
Massacre at Mountain Meadows, covers a period of Mormon history,
1856-1858, laden with controversy: the Reformation, blood atonement,
Utah War, murder of Parley Pratt, the Mountain Meadows Massacre and
the trials and execution of John D. Lee (1874-1877). Historians and
students are divided on some of the main issues and events of this era
and many of the lesser ones. His book adds to the controversy. This
promises to be a lively discussion. Listeners are inivited to
participate. Those who would like to pose a question to Will Bagley
may send me an email NOW, or during the talk show, at:
