We have heard some of the stories about the blood of the faithful.

Hundreds died in the treks west to the promised land. Dozens were slain defending their homes from mob warfare.  We have been taught since youth that these valiant disciples of the gospel who gave their lives are men and women we should revere.

But do we know their names?

Do we know their lives, their hopes, their dreams, their ambitions in a brave new world? Do we know the legacy of their children, or why they decided to give their lives for a gospel so many scorn?

It is our mission for this page to give them that voice and platform from beyond the grave. Through a weekly column, we will be writing articles detailing the lives that led up to their valiant sacrifice, and provide some insight on why they might have given their lives for an ideal. With this knowledge, we hope to be able to inspire others to live their lives in a way that will honor their sacrifice.
