The Latter-day Saints weren't always saintly during this period of time. This isn't to pass judgement on them, because I don't think I would do any better under similar circumstances; but, in any conflict or war, there are always people who suffer on both sides. There are often people on both sides who commit atrocities.

If this subject interests you, you might want to look into the book, "The Refiner's Fire" by Alvin R. Dyer.

As a Latter-day Saint, this proved to be one of the most interesting books that I have read. The Latter-day Saints have always been motivated by the building of Zion.

This book explains in part why it went wrong. It wasn’t always the fault of the Missourians, but they weren’t exactly saints either.
