Editorial Reviews

He led his people from persecution to a new Zion in the American West. He stood against those who opposed him with the strength afforded by his unshakable faith in God. Hit the pioneer trail with one of the most compelling figures in American history. Brigham Young earned the name "the American Moses" for leading his people to a new home in Utah far from the prejudice and intolerance of Missouri and Illinois. Once there he directed the creation of a thriving city out of this harsh Western wasteland and wielded absolute authority for thirty years. BIOGRAPHY explores the remarkable life of this famed pioneer from his childhood in New England to his stands against the federal government. Mormon historians tell how he took control over the church after the assassination of founder Joseph Smith and reveal the details of his personal life he had 25 wives and over 50 children! Join BIOGRAPHY for the saga of Brigham Young a story of perseverance courage and resolute faith in God.

The BIOGRAPHY CHANNEL documentary on Brigham Young is a blend of documentary, talking heads, and hagiography. A deeply complex man, with an enormous ego, Brigham Young is depicted in basically favorable light in this 50 minute program. His role in the "Mountain Meadows Massacre" is glossed over, while most historians fault him for involvement "top to bottom," and his incredible marriages to 50 women are treated as a bit of a curiosity. It outraged a nation at the time! Although Brigham Young was indeed the "first governor of Utah Territory," there is no mention of why statehood remained impossible during his lifetime and for score of years after his death (polygamy). The statement that "Utah was made a territory to somehow balance slave states and anti-slavery states" is poor political science - - it is not true. Brigham Young's significant organizational abilities, his "design and plan" for Salt Lake City, and his binding of the main community of LDS into a cohesive group are rightfully credited and expostulated about. The tidbit about the stamps honoring pioneers of the west was curious in suggesting that Brigham Young should have been one of those honored...He was a deeply controversial figure, who actually tried to make war with the US Army, and really wanted an independent "state" of Deseret. The BIOGRAPHY CHANNEL's selection of "experts" to be the talking heads was not balanced: It was mostly Mormon historians and others from two UNArizona and UNM Albuquerque. All in all, however, it represents an important contribution to an important figure in USA history.

Most of it was good, but they spent too much time on the Mountain Meadow Massacre which had very little to do with Brigham Young. I thought they should have spent more time on his architectual achievements.

A relative of Brigham Young watched it and liked it as much as I did. He was an incredible person. I wish I had known him.
