Phillip B Gottfredson Research Archive
Phillip B Gottfredson has been devoted to researching the Black Hawk War in Utah for decades, from 1989 to present. The following is a collection of articles and notes Gottfredson wrote while on his journey of discovery throughout Utah researching the Black Hawk War and learning the life-ways of First Nations peoples. Often Phillip would come face-to-face with discrimination and resistance to his project to discover the truth about the war between Mormon colonizers and the Timpanogos Nation peoples. Eventually Phillip would write about his experiences in his first book titled "My Journey to Understand... Black Hawk's Mission of Peace".
