Major Articles[]

  1. First Missionary Journey of Samuel Smith to the nearby town of Mendon, NY. At the time it was thought this mission was a failure since he could only hand out just one Book of Mormon and was otherwise met with much rejection and discouragement. But in just two years time, that one book would come into the hands of the Greene, Young and Kimball families which would be the source by which many thousands would join the new church and also the source of many future prominent church leaders.
  2. Zions Camp 1834 - an expedition of 150 early members of the LDS Church to help church members gain back loss property. They met with many difficulties and accomplished little. But from its roster would come forth many of the future leaders and pioneers of the church with their faith already tested.
  3. Mormon Battalion - A volunteer military unit of nearly 600 members of the church created to fight in the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848. They embarked on the longest forced march in US Military history (Iowa to San Diego) and also have the distinction of being the only religious based fighting unit created in the history of the US Armed Services.
  4. General Authorities of the LDS Church =
  5. 1856 Martin Handcart Company -
