Polygamy on the Pedernales
- Lyman Wight's Mormon Village in Antebellum Texas
- By: Melvin C Johnson
- Narrated by: Don Coltrane
- Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins
In the wake of Joseph Smith Jr.’s murder in 1844, his following splintered, and some allied themselves with a maverick Mormon apostle, Lyman Wight. Sometimes called the "Wild Ram of Texas," Wight took his splinter group to frontier Texas, a destination to which Smith, before his murder, had considered moving his followers, who were increasingly unwelcome in the Midwest. He had instructed Wight to take a small band of church members from Wisconsin to establish a Texas colony that would prepare the ground for a mass migration of the membership.
