It was a rainy May evening in 1842 when the quiet of the Boggs family home was shattered by gunfire. Though gravely wounded, Governor Lilburn Boggs—best known for his extermination order against members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—survived the attempt on his life. What followed was a crime investigation that had at its center echoes of the bitter history between the Latter-day Saints and the ruthless politician. The inquest was concentrated on two of the very men in the crosshairs of Boggs’s own deadly objective: Joseph Smith and his loyal friend Porter Rockwell.In The Trial of Porter Rockwell, readers will experience the dramatic hunt for Governor Boggs’s assailant and the uncertain justice faced by the legendary man whose very life depended on proving his innocence.

REVIEW by LAWonder10:
The DVD was outstanding! Porter Rockwell was always an intriguing figure to me - as to many in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - but I learned a lot in this short DVD presentation of his Trial.
This period of history was a very trying times for those individuals who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The cruel injustices performed by others, claiming to be Christians, were so inhumane. It us sad that even in this country of "Freedom of Religion", at times, many were cruelly tortured, persecuted and driven from their homes and communities. Christ was tolerant, and loved all. He saw into each individual's heart and soul. Ironically, His greatest enemies were His own people.
The acting was perfect and the setting was authentic in appearance.
This was informative and produced well.
I offer a STRONG Five Stars rating, as did all I viewed it with did.
This opportunity was presented by the publisher, with no request for a positive review. This is my honest review.
