The Mountain Meadows Massacre stands without a parallel amongst the crimes that stain the pages of American history. It was a crime committed without cause or justification of any kind to relieve it of its fearful character... When nearly exhausted from fatigue and thirst, [the men of the caravan] were approached by white men, with a flag of truce, and induced to surrender their arms, under the most solemn promises of protection. They were then murdered in cold blood.
William Bishop, Attorney to John D. Lee
Editors Note: John D. Lee, was the only person ever punished for the massacre and he was shot by a firing squad twenty years later at Mountain Meadows. He was hidden, protected, and then thrown down by BRIGHAM YOUNG. The LDS church continues to do its cover-up for Brigham Young, an out of control mass murder. Brigham Young has a lot of excess baggage to cover-up, without including the Mountain Meadows Massacre.
