James Strang


Been reading a very interesting book the past few days. The King of Confidence: A Tale of Utopian Dreamers, Frontier Schemers, True Believers, False Prophets, and the Murder of an American Monarch by Miles Harvey. I was not totally unfamiliar with the story of King James Strang, having picked up a slim history volume on the notorious Mormon leader and film-flam man many years ago on a trip to Beaver Island. Was inspired to draw a portrait today.
