Haun’s Mill Massacre 1838


On October 27, 1838, following the Battle of Crooked River in which the Mormons prevailed against the Missouri state militia, Governor Lilburn Boggs issued Missouri Executive Order 44.

Three days later, on October 30, 1838, Missouri militiamen attacked a Mormon settlement near a mill owned by Jacob Haun. At least 17 Mormons were killed including 3 young boys.

“The Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated

or driven from the state if necessary for the public peace—their outrages

are beyond all description.” Lilburn Boggs
