The infamous Meadow Mountain Massacre took place on September 11, 1857. There are numerous stories about what happened.
LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley delivered words of reconciliation at the Sept. 11, 1999, dedication of a rebuilt monument to emigrants slaughtered by Mormon militiamen and their Indian allies 142 years earlier. He emphasized in his talk, "That which we have done here must never be construed as an acknowledgment of the part of the church of any complicity in the occurrences of that fateful day".
