They arrive at Salt Lake City and eventually stopping to rest at mountain meadows where they are attacked by the militia leaders. The author tries to put the bigger picture in the mind of the reader so that one can understand that the attacks are made due to intruding in other people's

In 1864, after being given whiskey by two Franklin settlers one young Indian from Chief Washakie’s tribe tried to run over Franklin settler Mary Ann Alder with his horse. During the event, one other settler shot the Indian and had to leave in order to alert the Minutemen in Cache Valley. In order to pacify the Indians several Franklin settlers, including Bishop Lorenzo Hill Hatch, Peter Maughan and Ezra T. Benson of Logan, spent the night at the Indian camp with Chief Washakie discussing what took place. As payment the settlers who had sold the Indians the whiskey were to give flour, cheese, other food items, and two yokes of oxen to the Indians. Overall these events and the treaty, not only enabled the Franklin settlement to expand, but it also enabled other settlements to expand outside of their fort boundaries, encouraged more settlers to the area ,and promoted the use of local natural resources and the expansion of new industries for the

Emmett was left mutilated and horrendous looking for all of the world to see when his mother decided to have an open-coffin funeral. News of Emmett’s story spread through the nation like a forest fire, outraging and devastating people all over, saying how brutal the murder was, or how it wasn’t brutal enough. Emmett’s trial took place less than 2 weeks after he’d been killed, and somehow his trial was more unfair than his death. During trial, Mr. Breland harassed Till’s Uncle Mose, “And yet you could see clearly, clearly enough to accuse to white men of murder, to claim that the men on your porch were Mr. Bryant and Mr. Milam over there… No problem with white folks, yet there you sit accusing two of our upstanding white citizens of barging into your home in the middle of the night, pointing a gun and a flashlight in your face, and hauling off your nephew”(170/171). Even though Bryant and Milam both admitted to kidnapping Emmett, the possibility of the two men not even being there to take Emmett is beyond irrational, even when both men stated their names at Moses 's door.
