A President, a Church, and Trails West
Not available online
TitleA President, a Church, and Trails West
AbstractContinuation of title, "Competing Histories in Independence, Missouri." The author Jon E. Taylor, former historian for the Harry S Truman National Historic Site in Independence, Missouri, examines how three nationally significant histories--President Truman, the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (now called the Community of Christ), and the trails (Oregon, Santa Fe, and California)--interact and compete for space and funds as the city of Independence struggles to balance these interests to preserve its history and the built environment. Includes maps, a chronology (xv-xvii), pictures, bibliography, and index.
