The article discusses research concerning a document known as the "Caractors" and its relationship to the "Book of Mormon" and the gold plates associated with the "Book of Mormon," and its significance to the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS). It discusses the testimony of possible gold plates witness David Whitmer, the interpretative research of historian George Q. Cannon, and whether the document was the same as the document taken to scholar Charles Anthon from LDS convert Martin Harris.
