A story set against the Mountain Meadows Massacre, the film is based upon the tragedy which occurred in Utah in 1857. A group of settlers, traveling on wagons, was murdered by the native Mormons. All together, about 140 souls of men, women and children, were taken. Amidst this, two young lovers-to-be, one a Mormon and the other one of the doomed settlers from Arkansas, develop a relationship in an atmosphere of suspicion and rancor.Written by
In reality, Joseph Smith, Jr. had twenty-four wives. He and his first wife, Emma, had nine children: Alvin, who died shortly after birth, premature twins Thaddeus and Louisa, who only lived a few hours, Joseph and Julia, who were given to them to adopt after their own twins died, Joseph Smith III, Frederick Granger Williams Smith, Alexander Hale Smith, and David Hyrum Smith, born after Joseph's death. There is no evidence that he had children with any of his other wives. See more »

Before I even opened the comments page for this film, I was certain I'd find dozens of posts filled with alibis and distortions aimed at exonerating the Mormons of any complicity in the Mountain Meadows massacre. I was not wrong. There were even a few "reviews" (sic) that leaned heavily towards blaming the victims for the crime! Even the one-line summary on the first page was biased: "Plot Outline: A love story set during a tense encounter between a wagon train of settlers and a renegade Mormon group." "Renegade" Mormon group? Not according to every legitimate historical account of the incident.
It appears that "September Dawn" will be the latest "Passion of the Christ", with Mormons going ballistic over every detail.
Hasn't anyone ever heard of accepting responsibility? Why is it deemed necessary that every founding member of every faith be 100% saintly? A terrible act was committed a long time ago. Admit it, deal with it, and move on.
