Plaque to Tell Of `Utah's Darkest Day'

LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley is scheduled to dedicate a new monument at the site of the Mountain Meadows Massacre near Cedar City, Utah, Saturday. The monument replaces a string of previous monuments that have deteriorated over time.

Monument instills healing at Mountain Meadows site

Calling for healing and peace, President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the grave-site memorial at the Mountain Meadows Massacre site, about 35 miles north of St. George, Utah. About 100 descendents of the children that survived the massacre attended the ceremony, along with descendents of members of the Iron County militia, which participated. "All who knew firsthand about what occurred here are long since gone. Let the book of the past be closed. Let peace come into our hearts," said President Hinckley.
