Paul Ellsworth in “Mobocracy and the Rule of Law: American Press Reaction to the Murder of Joseph Smith” tries to fill in the gap of Mormon studies where there is lacking evidence of how the general public reacted to Joseph Smith’s murder. President Brigham Young is often not remembered for his efforts and reorganization of the priesthood. William G. Hartley attempts to bring to light Young’s contributions as well as how the organization was run during this prophet’s life.
