Who is O.P. Rockwell?
Orrin Porter Rockwell was a figure of the Wild West period of American History and a law man in the Utah Territory. Nicknamed Old Port and labeled “the Destroying Angel of Mormondom”, during his lifetime he was as famous and controversial as Wyatt Earp or Pat Garrett. He was the bodyguard and personal friend of Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement.
He was also reputed to have killed many men as a gunfighter, as a religious enforcer, and Deputy United States Marshal. It is said that Rockwell once told a crowd listening to United States Vice President Schuyler Colfax in 1869, “I never killed anyone who didn’t need killing”.
