Reconstruction in Mormon America
Clyde A. Milner and Brian Q. Cannon, eds.
University of Oklahoma Press, 2019 (available in October)
This edited collection resulted from our Summer 2017 seminar. Driven by a nagging question of why Mormons do not have a "Lost Cause" tradition like the post-Civil War South, editors Clyde Milner and Brian Q. Cannon (former Redd Center Director) marshalled a group of scholars to write on a variety of topics that use the Reconstruction Era to reevaluate Mormon history. The contributors include an impressive collection of scholars, both senior and junior.
