180 years ago today - Jun 27, 1843

In the afternoon Joseph meets the first of the men on horseback from Nauvoo. Letting his tears go, Joseph cries, "I am not going to Missouri this time. These are my boys." These men have all been riding frantically from Nauvoo, sometimes forcing whiskey down their horses' throats just to keep them going.

[Conkling, Christopher J., Joseph Smith Chronology]
