We all know history is fact. But when someone tries to take history and try to render it into a movie, show, book, play or some other media, obviously facts get changed.
I agree that September Dawn wasn’t the best of movies. But if you want to further understand the history of the Mountain Meadows Massacre, I recently read a book called "Destroying Angel" by Charles M. Larson. It was just recently released a few weeks ago, and you can find it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Destroying-Angel-Charles-M-Larson/dp/1933990155/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1222188268&sr=11-1
It’s a historical fiction novel interspersed with a modern murder mystery, but it gives a good and fair insight into the massacre that seems fair. The reviews on the Amazon page are informative.
I can say that as a non-Mormon and as a person who didn’t know anything about the culture, religion, and history, that I’m learning a lot through not just this book, but through everything else that is written about LDS.
