The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we have a very enlightening conversation with two historians about the war of 1812. Transoceanic civil wars, back-stabbings by warring Indian tribes, impressment of sailors, and reportedly invincible armies are some of the topics of discussion. A leader emerges that Joe could have spent hours fantasizing about. How does this war effect Joe, and did he use some of the 1812 circumstances in his own Book of Mormon? Listen and decide for yourself.
