On September 11, 1857, horror sweeps over a wagon train in the southern mountains of Utah. One hundred and twenty men, women, and children are brutally murdered. For more than a century, their bodies lay buried beneath the soil, along with a terrible, dark secret.
In this somber account of an unthinkable tragedy, MOUNTAIN MASSACRE examines the details of what happened to the unsuspecting settlers making their way from Arkansas to California, and why the mystery around who was responsible for their deaths remains unsolved. In 1857, the Fancher-Baker wagon train was making its way across the Utah territory when it was attacked by Paiute Indians. The pioneers defended their position for five days, and then salvation seemingly appeared: A Mormon militia led by Captain John D. Lee promised them protection if they would surrender their arms. With no other options, the settlers agreed, and were then set upon almost immediately and systematically murdered. In this horrifying story, find out how the most gripping chapter was written after 1999, when a backhoe operator unearthed a mass grave filled with the remains of the Fancher-Baker victims. The bones had only begun to tell their secrets when Utah s governor ordered the remains reinterred. But why?
Featuring fascinating period accounts and interviews with renowned historians, INVESTIGATING HISTORY® offers an incisive perspective on this chilling tale.
