180 years ago today - Mar 27, 1832

[General] Joseph Smith (while living at the Johnson's in Hirum, OH) and Sidney Rigdon are tarred and feathered by Mormons Simons Rider, Warren Waste, Eli Johnson, Edward Johnson, and John Johnson upon rumors of Smith's intimacy with Eli Johnson's sister Nancy Marinda Johnson, age16. The mob also brings Joseph Smith to Dr. Dennison for castration but the Dennison refuses to perform the operation. Next day, Sidney Rigdon is crazed and wants to kill Joseph Smith with his razor.
