160 years ago today - Aug 23, 1860

The President [Brigham Young] remarked that whenever any nation had commenced making arms and ammunition, it has always been with a view to the death of their fellow men and when was there a time when these implements of death were not used; and in a few years these murderous feelings will strengthen to such an extent that the work of death will commence. -- Salt Lake City
