SW09020: Two Early Mormon Revelations Attributed to Joseph Smith and their Impact

This presentation focuses on two millenarian revelations attributed to Mormon Church founder, Joseph smith, specifically, his 1832 “Revelation and Prophecy on War” and the so-called “White Horse Prophecy.” Both revelations were highly publicized and familiar to both Latter-day Saints and non-Mormons alike. In addition to comparing and contrasting these two prophecies, I will also discuss the impact of these documents on the Latter-day Saint community as well as on American society in general during the course of the 19th, 20th, and 21st Centuries.
