The History of Warsaw Illinois Including the Mormon Period
by Brian Stutzman
Warsaw, Illinois- home of the mob that killed Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith in 1844. But the town is much more than that! A bustling Mississippi River town that was home to 4 U.S. presidential candidates, it has a fascinating 200 year history starting as the site of 2 early military forts, tensions with the nearby Mormons, then an economic boom and bust. A unique town with a unique history!
