Mountain Meadows Massacre

Mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) killed 120 unarmed members of a wagon train on September 11. 1857 Mountain Meadows Massacre.

In 1857, 120 unarmed members of a wagon train moving through southern Utah were attacked and slaughtered at the hands of Mormon militia. Until the Oklahoma City bombing, this was the largest-scale massacre single-event massacre in US History. And like another brutal massacre some 150 years later, this one occurred on September 11th as well. And yet it remains an obscure historical footnote, because of an active cover-up that has gone on for 150 years; the Mormon Church continues to deny any culpability in this travesty.

Was Mountain Meadows Massacre Christian love?

September Dawn is from 2006. It is not a nice movie but is not a lot of killing, only a short periode.
