> Who can educate me on the "Danites" in the late 1830's and later?

Have you checked the Encyclopedia of Mormonism?  I don't know much about 
them except what I read in Harold Shindler's ORRIN PORTER ROCKWELL: SON 
OF THUNDER over 30 years ago.  Apparently the Danites were a vigilante 
group organized to defend the saints during the persecutions in early 
Church history.  There was a fellow named Dan Hickman who was one of the 
organizers and early leaders of the group.  Because it was a secret 
society it never enjoyed Church sanction, and in fact it became a great 
liability for the Church because our enemies began making the false 
claim that it had been organized under priesthood authority and 
attributed every crime imaginable to the group.

Most of this I am sure you already know.  Unfortunately, I am not enough 
of a student of Church history to tell you more.  I'm sure there must be 
others on the list that can add a lot more.
