Abstract

Examines the lives, roles, contributions, testimonies, and apostasy of the five sons of Peter Whitmer, Sr.—David, Christian, Jacob, Peter Jr., and John—all of whom were special witnesses of the Book of Mormon plates. For a time, they were all very instrumental in building, defending and leading the Church. Despite their eventual estrangement from the Church, they all remained true to their testimonies regarding seeing and hefting the Book of Mormon plates and proclaiming the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.
