The Mormon/Utah War... The Kansas problem...

Item # 698406

December 29, 1857

THE NORWALK EXPERIMENT, Huron County, Ohio, Dec. 29, 1857

* The Mormon/Utah War
* Brigham Young's sermon of defiance
* Give the President a piece of his mind

The front page has the bold single column heading: "THE MORMONS WAR", with subheadings: "Their Prophet Defies the Powers that be, in the name of Israel's God!", and "The Priest and People cry Amen!", which provide nearly 2 1/2 columns of text on the Mormon resistance in 1857. See photos for portions of the text.
Page 2 has much on the tensions in Kansas.
Other news of the day is found throughout.
Four pages, the left spine had damage which has been archivally mended as good as possible, a bit of close trimming at the bottom margin, but the majority of the issue is good.
