Storming the Nation, outlines why Joseph ran and why he sent a cadre of over 600 electioneer missionaries to preach and politick throughout the country. Latter-day Saint Historian Derek Sainsbury details who the electioneers were before the campaign, their activities and experiences as electioneers, and who they became after Joseph's assassination. Storming the Nation illuminates and memorializes the loyalty, sacrifices, and extraordinary lives and contributions of a heroic host who have been overlooked and forgotten by history--until now.
