Winner of the Harvey B. Black and Susan Easton Black Outstanding Publication Award (Gospel Scholarship in Church History and Doctrine), Civil War Saints takes a fresh look at Latter-day Saints and Utah Territory during the Civil War. Come learn the stories of Latter-day Saints who fought in Union blue and others who wore confederate gray.

Civil War Saints is a nicely balanced effort to help readers gain a deeper appreciation of the events and experiences that made the Civil War and its effect upon Latter-day Saints and Utah Territory such a watershed event.

How many Latter-day Saints participated in the Civil War, and who were they? The answers to those questions have remained elusive—until now. Civil War Saints also includes the most thoroughly researched list of Latter-day Saint Civil War veterans ever published.
