In the early fall of 1857, a wagon train of migrants from Arkansas to California was massacred in Mountain Meadows in what is now Zion National Park. The site was recognized as a national historic landmark on Saturday. The dedication seemingly closes a long-running dispute about the role of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the tragedy. So what is the story and what took so long to resolve it?
Once again the LDS church imposes their 'norms' on their victims.
The Baker-Fancher wagon train pioneers were mostly Methodists, therefore the Memorial should rightly have included a Christian Cross.
Even now years after this murder of innocents by a Mormon militia, we only get a Memorial purely on Mormon terms.
