Richard E. Turley Jr. Turley discusses the problems with the Mountain Meadow Massacre using three main sources of history on the Mountain Meadows Massacre: Major Carleton's report, John D. Lee trial transcripts, and "Mormonism Unveiled." The Carleton report's main flaw is that it confuses the Arkansas train with another wagon train called the Perkins train, which actually took a more northerly route to California. The John D. Lee trial transcripts were copied years later from the shorthand transcripts written at the time of the trial. Of the two court reporters, one Rogerson is shown to have altered and embellished the contents of the original shorthand when he transcribed it. The other, Patterson, died before his shorthand was transcribed, and one of Patterson's former students attempted to transcribe Patterson's confusing shorthand with the help of Rogerson and his notes. John D. Lee is shown to be an unreliable source, as his stories of the massacre grew and changed over time. In addition, Bishop, Lee's lawyer, seems to have added to and sensationalized Lee's testimony in order to help sell his book.
