180 years ago today - Mar 7, 1841

According to Zina Huntington, shortly after Apostle Brigham Young's return to Nauvoo in July 1841, he re-performed her polygamous sealing to the Prophet. - Thus, Zina Huntington was Joseph Smith's plural wife for ten months before her civil marriage to Henry Jacobs on 7 March 1841.
