Summary, etc.:
These nine essays explain why Missouri had an important place in the theology of 1830s Mormonism and was envisioned as the site of a grand temple. The essays also look at interpretations of the massacre, the response of Columbia's more moderate citizens to imprisoned church leader, and Mormon migration through the state over the thirty years following their expulsion.--[book jacket].
