George Reynolds, incarcerated for plural marriage, decides to prepare a concordance to the Book of Mormon while in prison. Over the course of the project, Reynolds prepares and transcribes as many as 350 passages per day from the Book of Mormon and completes 25,000 entries by the time he is released in January 1881. The concordance is completed in 1899.
