About the Book

B. H. Roberts, an important figure in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and a noted historian and scholar, wrote "The Missouri Persecutions" as a historical study. This book details the persecution and sufferings endured by early Mormon pioneers in Missouri during the 1830s and early 1840s, chronicling a sad chapter in the history of the LDS Church. Roberts goes into great detail on the events that led up to the Missouri persecutions, the factors which contributed to religious tension, and the bloody fights that ensued. He talks about the rise of anti-Mormon feeling, political squabbles, and the social and religious differences that drove anti-Mormon prejudice. The book also emphasizes the Mormon pioneers' fight and determination in the face of mob violence, forced expulsions, and property loss. Roberts digs into the fundamental legal and constitutional concerns that developed at this time as the Mormons sought vengeance for the abuses they observed. Some stories are violent and strange, while others creep up on you and slowly imbibe you in. This edition of "The Missouri Persecutions" is both current and understandable, with an eye-catching new cover and professionally typeset copy.

About Author

B. H. Roberts

Brigham Henry Roberts (March 13, 1857 – September 27, 1933) was a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) historian, politician, and leader. He independently wrote the six-volume Comprehensive History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and edited the seven-volume History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Roberts also wrote Studies of the Book of Mormon, which was released posthumously and explored the Book of Mormon's authenticity as an ancient record. Because of his polygamy, Roberts was denied a seat in the United States Congress. Roberts was born in Warrington, Lancashire, England, the son of alcoholic blacksmith and ship plater Benjamin Roberts and seamstress Ann Everington. Both of his parents converted to the LDS Church the year he was born. Then Benjamin Roberts abandoned his family. "My childhood was a nightmare; my boyhood was a tragedy," Roberts later wrote. B. H. Roberts and a sister departed England in April 1866, aided by the Perpetual Emigrating Fund. They boarded a wagon train in Nebraska and walked—barefoot for much of the way—to Salt Lake City, where they were met by their mother, who had preceded them.
