In reading a short newspaper account of certain events from the life of John Taylor (See:, including a visit made by John Taylor near Carthage shortly after the Martyrdom, one interesting question come to mind--what role did Mormons, or former Mormons, play in the role of assassinating the Prophet Joseph and his brother Hyrum? I will readily admit that Church History has never been my forte, but I'm not totally ignorant either. I at least have a general grasp of most events in Church History and have a general sense that several apostate Mormons were involved in the assassination. But I would like someone who has more knowledge in this area to enlighten me more as to specific names or characters involved. How about it, you history buffs?

"There is one and only one legitimate goal of United States foreign policy. It is a narrow goal, a nationalistic goal: the preservation of our national independence. Nothing in the Constitution grants that the president shall have the privilege of offering himself as a world leader. He is our executive; he is on our payroll; he is supposed to put our best interests in front of those of other nations. Nothing in the Constitution nor in logic grants to the president of the United States or to Congress the power to influence the political life of other countries, to 'uplift' their cultures, to bolster their economies, to feed their people, or even to defend them against their enemies." (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 614; see also pp. 682 & 704.)
