James Strang and the Mormon Kingdom on Beaver Island (Video)

The following about the Strangite branch of the Latter-day Saint tradition is well worth a listen if you're interested in North American religious history. John Hamer, a historian and pastor of the Toronto Community of Christ, walks us through the prelude to Joseph Smith, the main events of his life, and then onto how things proceeded with the church James Strang gathered. What has survived of the Strangites is very little. It's just one congregation in Voree, Wisconsin.
