The Evening and the Morning Star (often shortened to Evening and Morning Star) was an early Latter Day Saint periodical published monthly in Independence, Missouri, from June 1832 to July 1833, and then in Kirtland, Ohio, from December 1833 to September 1834. When The Kansas City Star initiated publication on September 18, 1880, it was the next Jackson County, Missouri newspaper named the "Star" since the Mormons published the first regular journal in the region[1] in 1832-1833, after the Missouri Territory was accepted as a State in the Union on August 10, 1821.

Printing in Missouri

The Evening and Morning Star was the first Latter Day Saint periodical. It was initially published in a printing office operated by William Wines Phelps in Independence, Missouri beginning in June, 1832 until the office was destroyed by a mob on 20 July 1833, after the Star published a discussion[2] of U.S. and Missouri laws regarding slavery, African-Americans, and mixed-raced Americans. Pro-slavery Missourians responded with an outraged "Manifesto of the Mob," [3], in which Mormons were decried as "...deluded fanatics, or weak and designing knaves..." and so forth. The mob also destroyed numerous uncompleted copies of the Book of Commandments.

Printing resumed in Ohio

After the Latter Day Saints were expelled from Missouri in late 1833, the publication was printed in Kirtland, Ohio, in a shop owned by Frederick G. Williams. The editor in Kirtland was Oliver Cowdery. The publication was eventually succeeded by the Messenger and Advocate.
