175 years ago today - Feb 28, 1846

Communication to the Governor of Iowa ... to shield and protect the Mormons in their constitutional rights is pointed out the dilemma that faced the L.D.S. Church and its membership in Illinois in 1846: "To stay, is death by 'fire and sword,' to go into banishment unprepared, is death by starvation."

[Clark, James R., Messages of the First Presidency (6 volumes)]
