Feb 4 - Mormons journey to Utah

Updated: May 18


Today on Feb 4 we remember how the Church of the Latter Day Saints left their wintering grounds in search of a safe place to establish themselves. We look at their two founders, the mercurial Joseph Smith and Brigham Young who soon was compared to Moses. Their encounter with a Jesuit missionary and explorer and how it lead them to the Valley of the Salt Lake. We also explore a little their reputation in the States of being successful and 'clean-living' businessmen and women.
