S.2 E.6 – Carthage Conspiracy : Part 2
In Part 2 of Carthage Conspiracy, we continue to address claims made in the video “Who Killed Joseph Smith”. After showing example after example where the creators of the film omitted significant details to allow their “theory” to have any sort of merit we end with the testimony of John Taylor.
In response to several recent emails, we discuss several conspiracy theories about the murder of Joseph and Hyrum Smith.
