Due to the hoopla and misinformation in the PBS special, here is my original article on The Utah War, researched in the files of the Church History Department. It was written for Backwoods Home Magazine, but never published by them. I have added a section on blacks and the priesthood. Published with permission.

I think the denial of blacks holding the priesthood may have had something to do with timing in terms of church growth and the overall church mission.
