160 years ago today - Nov 30, 1861

[Brigham Young]

This morning br. A. Carrington was conversing with the President about the movement of the federal government and the Southern Confederacy. The President remarked he expects to see nothing but folly in their movements. The President traces the source of their troubles to the killing of the Prophet Joseph and the rejection of the Gospel, the driving of the Saints years ago and finally sending an army here to afflict our people. -- Salt Lake City
