The Mormon Menace

Violence and Anti-Mormonism in the Postbellum South

Patrick Mason

  • Reveals anti-Mormonism as a significant cultural phenomenon in the late nineteenth century, in a region where it has not previously been studied
  • Argues that anti-Mormonism served a modest but significant function as one of the earliest forms of national reconciliation after Reconstruction, uniting southerners and northerners in a common cause
  • Provides the first sustained treatment of anti-Mormonism that incorporates all the elements of anti-Mormonism - legislative, intellectual, legal, cultural, religious, and violent, on both an elite and grassroots level
