130 years ago today - Aug 2, 1892

First polygamous marriage performed in the LDS Canadian settlement by its president Charles O. Card, who performs this marriage by instruction of the First Presidency. To the end of 1905 only fifteen more post-Manifesto plural marriages occur in Canada (by Card and his successor as polygamy officiator), compared with hundreds performed in Mexico and the United States.
