There is much in the literature of Utah-Mormon history that mentions the name of Lot Smith over and over again. As one evaluates the material for this biography, the contribution and significance of the life of Lot Smith in relation to the times in which he lived become meaningful. Lot Smith helped build much of Utah and Arizona history.
This thesis places emphasis on the following phases of his life: The Mormon Battalion, The Utah War, The Civil War, and The Arizona Mission. Lot was mainly a soldier, but he was also a missionary, farmer and statesman whose whole way of life was centered around building and defending the Mormon Kingdom of God.
