120 years ago today - Oct 30, 1898 (Sunday)

Elders B.F. Duffin and Chas. A. Haacke were taken out of the Methodist Episcopal church at Henry, Coddington Co, S.D. (where they were sleeping during the night), by a mob of five men, led by Quin McMullen. The Elders were followed out of town, threatened with tar and feathers and otherwise abused. The night was a bitterly cold one, and the Elders nearly perished through exposure.

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
