Though the Mormons fled to Utah specifically to escape oppression and intervention by the American government, they were not left to their own devices for long: in 1857, the church was confronted by the United States Army. This History Channel special explores the persecution that drove the Mormons west to make a new start, and uses re-enactments and expert testimony to illuminate the bloody days of the "Utah War."
Description by New Video Group:
In 1857, beleaguered but determined Mormon settlers in the Utah wilderness prepared for a bloody confrontation. They had marched halfway across the country to escape the persecution and prejudice of fellow citizens, only to be pursued by the United States Army!
THE MORMON REBELLION tells the dramatic story of America's fiercest confrontation between church and state. Learn of the long history of persecution that had forced the Mormons west to Utah, and the reports which prompted the government to send its forces after them. Contemporary accounts capture the danger and intensity of the "Utah War," which claimed the lives of 120 men, women and children, and nearly erupted into a much deadlier conflict.
Archival documents and stunning re-creations bring the defining moments of the standoff to life, and Mormon historians explore the legacy it left behind. THE MORMON REBELLION reveals the truth behind an often-overlooked chapter in American history.
