I have a friend that told me the Mormons murdered children at the massacre in Mountain Meadows. I have read many different versions of this story. Which is correct?





Dear Faith,

The Mountain Meadow Massacre was a tragedy that should not have happened. But it did.

On the 150th anniversary of the massacre the Church put out the following article which details the sad events:

The Mountain Meadows Massacre

There are those who speculate that there were more people involved. There is no evidence to support this. Still events like this can try people’s faith. But in the end we have to put our faith in God, that His justice will be done to those responsible and His mercy extended to the victims.
