Title Diary of Brigham Young, page 090
Description what has been said, great resources are now available to the person willing to undertake the herculean task of read- ing and interpreting them to produce an objective study of Brigham Young-church president, governor, super- intendent of Indian affairs, successful businessman, railroad promoter, farmer, husband, and father of a large family. Only age fifty-six at the writing of this diary, Brigham Young lived another twenty years, until August 29, 1877- all of them contending with government officials over church principles that he stubornly refused to compromise. And even though a new governor was forced upon the people of Utah, Brigham Young remained the governor of his people in fact, despite new federal appointees and the presence of federal troops at Camp Floyd from 1858 to 1861 and one year later troops stationed literally on Young's doorstep with the establishment of Fort Douglas. Perhaps ga if it were not for the religious issues involved, Brigham Young would be hailed as a hero for his resistance to federal domination and dictation. The availability of new source material may yet determine whether he will be cast in the hero's role or that of a villain and an autocrat.
