(KCPW News) There’s another tragic event that happened on a September 11th that Utahns are familiar with – the Mountain Meadows Massacre of 1857. This Sunday, the site of that massacre will be formally designated as a National Historic Landmark. It was a tragic legacy of the Utah War, a conflict that may not be that well known outside of Utah, but is well known to our guest. William MacKinnon is author of At Sword’s Point, a compilation of his extensive research on the Utah War. He’ll speak tomorrow at the Utah State History Conference at the Fort Douglas Officer’s Club at 9 a.m.
