Abstract:

Long, noted Civil War historian and long-time research assistant to the late Bruce Catton, reveals a neglected but fascinating chapter in American frontier, Mormon, Indian, and Civil War history. His lively portrayal of two volatile personalities -- Mormon leader Brigham Young and U.S. military commander General Patrick Connor -- depicts events which helped shape the "opening up of the West." While the Civil War raged in the East, the Mormons in Utah zealously continued to guard their cultural identity and church practices from federal control. At the same time, however, they lobbied hard for statehood, but were continually thwarted by a series of inept or antagonistic federal authorities. Drawing upon seldom-used archival material from the Mormon Church, Long's astute study depicts the earnest nature of this Mormon-federal conflict by focusing upon the battle of wills and words beteen Young and Connor. - Jacket flap.
