The Remarkable Journey of the Mormon Battalion - DVD

by Landon/Metcalf


Quick Overview

This is the story of the Mormon Battalion and their participation in the Mexican-American War--their march to California, their brotherly service while garrisoned there, and their subsequent adventures upon their discharge.


In December 1847, a ragged band of soldiers known as the Mormon Battalion made their way into the Latter-day Saint settlement of Kanesville, Iowa, to be reunited with the families they had left behind for voluntary service in the United States Army. Full of compelling narrative and rich visuals, bring to life the history of this unusual military unit with all of its faith, sacrifice, and unflagging service. So significant was their contribution that upon their return, President Brigham Young called for a jubilee celebration in their honor, proclaiming their offering to be a salvation to the Latter-day Saints at a crucial time in their history, as well as the history of the nation. This fascinating story, too long neglected and too little understood, will humble and inspire you.
