The Great Apostasy by James E. Talmage4.5 Stars on Amazon!
The restored Church affirms that a general apostasy developed during and after the apostolic period, and that the primitive Church lost its power, authority, and graces as a divine institution, and degenerated into an earthly organization only. The significance and importance of the great apostasy, as a condition precedent to the re-establishment of the Church in modern times, is obvious. In the following pages the author has undertaken to present a summary of the most important of these evidences. In so doing he has drawn liberally from many sources of information, with due acknowledgment of all citations.

The Mormon Battalion by B.H. Roberts
On July 16, 1846 some 543 latter-day saints volunteered to enlist to aid the U.S. campaign against Mexico. This group of saints was known as the Mormon Battalion, and earned a place in the history of the West. During its 2,000 mile march its men cleared a wagon road from Santa Fe to San Diego and helped secure California as United States territory. Members of the Battalion helped preserve a feeble peace in southern California before the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended hostilities. They established a wagon road between the Gila and the Rio Grande, which influenced the U.S. government to make the Gadsden Purchase. They opened wagon roads that linked California with Salt Lake City via Carson and Cajon passes.These former LDS soldiers ultimately received favorable recognition both from their military commanders and from other non-Mormons for their industriousness and loyalty. And through it all, never fought a battle.
