Miles Harvey: The King of Confidence

Author Miles Harvey introduces us to James Strang, a charismatic young lawyer and avowed atheist, who vanished from a rural town in 1840s New York. Soon he persuaded hundreds of fellow Mormon-converts to follow him to an island, where he declared himself a divine king. Was his murder considered vigilante justice? Written, researched, and hosted by Kate Winkler Dawson/producer Alexis Amorosi/sound designer Andrew Eapen/composer Curtis Heath/web designer Ilsa Brink/additional research Ella Middleton Subscribe to my newsletter: tenfoldmorewicked.com Buy my books: katewinklerdawson.com If you have suggestions for historical crimes that could use some attention, email me: info@tenfoldmorewicked.com Follow me on social: @tenfoldmore (Twitter) / @tenfoldmorewicked (Facebook and Instagram) 2021 All Rights Reserved See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
