    The Tintic War and the deaths of George and Washington Carson – The First Posse

    In February 1856 Judge Drummond, a federally appointed judge in Utah, issued writs of arrest for Tintic and several other Indians who were thought to be responsible for the thefts of livestock during the preceding months. The judge was little liked by the Mormons, and he took no pains to hide his disdain for the Pioneers. Brigham Young and he were on especially unfriendly terms: Drummond felt that Young was cruel toward non-Mormons passing through the state, particularly if they were from Missouri; and President Young felt that Drummond was unnecessarily harsh when sentencing Mormons convicted of crimes, and often exercised his right as governor and pardoned them, much to Drummond’s anger.
