A new book entitled "Lincoln Looks West" discusses Lincoln's dealings with people west of the Mississippi during his presidency. There is a chapter on Lincoln and the Mormons which reveals connections to larger National issues as well as local issues. This website and the events throughout the next 4 years aim to reveal similar themes. If you are interested in this topic, this book is recommended reading.
