170 years ago today - Aug 12, 1843

Polygamy was announced in the Nauvoo High Council, read by Hyrum Smith. No wording exists. This is supposedly what was read to Emma shortly thereafter. It was supposedly received on July 27, 1842. As a result, Austin A. Cowles resigned from the High Council. On Apr 27, 1845 Cowles is run out of the city of Nauvoo by the Whistling and Whittling Brigade.
