Overview

2010 Reprint of 1876 Illustrated edition. This is the true facsimile of the rare original edition with illustrations, not a OCR based reprint. Ann Eliza Young (September 13, 1844-1925), also known as Ann Eliza Webb Dee Young Denning, was one of Brigham Young's fifty-five wives and later a critic of polygamy. She spoke out against the suppression of women and was an advocate for women's rights during the 19th century. In 1876, she published an autobiography entitled Wife No. 19. In it she wrote that she had "a desire to impress upon the world what Mormonism really is; to show the pitiable condition of its women, held in a system of bondage that is more cruel than African slavery ever was, since it claims to hold body and soul alike." This is her account of the "horrors of polygamy and masonry".
