  1. Peace Maker

    "The Peace Maker" is a pamphlet written by the Latter Day Saint author Udney Hay Jacob in 1842. The original two-chapter "Peace Maker" pamphlet was published in Nauvoo, Illinois with Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, listed as the printer. The pamphlet advocated polygamy. While Smith quickly and publicly disavowed any connection to the work, historians continue to debate the possibility that some aspects of the pamphlet may have represented Smith's thought. The history of this pamphlet is still shrouded in mystery. Udney Hay Jacob was not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when it was published. However, Jacob and his family had lived among the Latter Day Saints in Chautauqua, Co. NY in the early 1830s and in the Latter Day Saint region of Illinois throughout the period of settlement there. Additionally, Jacob was baptized into the church in 1843, the year after his pamphlet appeared. Joseph Smith denounced the pamphlet in the December 1, 1842, issue of Times and Seasons, the official church newspaper of the day, writing: There was a book printed at my office, a short time since, written by Udney H. Jacobs, on marriage, without my knowledge; and had I been apprised of it, I should not have printed it; not that I am opposed to any man enjoying his privileges; but I do not wish to have my name associated with the authors, in such an unmeaning rigmarole of nonsence, folly, and trash. JOSEPH SMITH.
