Thomas Kane

State of the Union

The story of Thomas Kane, a prominent lawyer, who endeavors to avert a war  between Brigham Young and President Buchanan. After a series of murderous reports, President Buchanan believes the Mormons to be in rebellion, and dispatches an army to replace Young as governor. Young, unadvised of the change, believes the approaching army to have malicious intent and determines to fight. Kane, a friend of both men, volunteers to race ahead of the army to head off a bloodbath.  

As timely today as ever, State of the Union is a story of pride, perseverance and friendship.
