Abstract

Six men rode into Salt Lake Valley and disappeared during the 1857-1858 Utah War. Their fate reveals the absence of federal law, which moved President Buchanan to dispatch troops to the Mormon territory. It also exposes the conditions that led to the Mountain Meadows massacre and Brigham Young's autocratic leadership.
