Though there were a number of participants who
had a hand in the tragedy of the Mountain Meadows Massacre, this list
comprises those who were the primary participants and/or assassins from a
historical perspective. In actuality, there were more than 50 men who took
part in the massacre, none of whom were ever disciplined by the Mormon
Church. And of the primary participants, only
John D. Lee ever stood
trial, and that would be 18 years after the tragedy. He was convicted and
executed in 1876.
In this beautiful valley, occurred one of the
most horrific and controversial
massacres in U.S. history, drawing by
H. Steinegger, Pacific Art Co, 1877.
