He told there of a Mormon posseOCOs 1862 attack on the Morrisite compound, killing Joseph Morris, and of the continuing Morrisite movement, which survived into the mid-twentieth century. In this newly revised edition, Anderson revisits his subject by referring to more recently discovered documents, considering other scholarsOCO continuing work on MorrisOCOs sect and related subjects, and examining a 1980s messianic sect that claimed a direct connection to the Morrisites.New documentary sources include a holograph OC History of George Morris, OCO written by Joseph MorrisOCOs brother, which Anderson quotes at length.

What was once a little-studied subject has since received attention from a number of scholars. Anderson references such current work on Mormon schismatic movements and broader subjects, much of which drew on his work. Perhaps the bookOCOs most interesting and unintended influence was on that obscure 1980s messianic sect, in Montana, which learned of Morris through Joseph Morris and the Saga of the Morrisites.
