1 LONG, E.B. THE SAINTS AND THE UNION - Utah Territory During the Civil War
Urbana University of Illinios Press 1981 0252008219 / 9780252008214 1st Editon Hard Cover Nr Fine Very Good Sl. Rubbed 
xiii+310pp+illus., maps on endpapers. The author covers a long neglected but fascinating chapter in American frontier, Mormon, Indian and Civil War history. His lively account 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 Territory zealously guarded their cultural identities and church practices from federal control. At the same time, however, they lobbied for statehood but were continually thwarted by a series of inept or antagonistic federal authorities. Bibliography and Index.
