The quote by Narcissa Whitman says, “I have a freedom in prayer for my beloved Parents. Earnestly desired that God would bless them in their declining years, and smooth their passage to the tomb; that in the absence of their earthly comforts, he would fill their souls with his more immediate presence, so that they may never have cause to regret the sacrifice they have made for his Name Sake.” The quote is beautifully designed with a picture of Mrs. Whitman. When buying this image you have permission to print it up for yourself and immediate family. Making copies for extended families and friends is not permitted. For best results print on cardstock or photo paper.

A Survivor’s Recollections of the Whitman Massacre by Matilda J. Sager Delaney

E-book, 46 pages, Price $3.95

As an adult Matilda tells a first-hand account of the events of that day and what happened to her and her sisters afterwards. This short history is not a literary masterpiece but it is very thrilling to hear the story from an eye witness.
