160 years ago today - Aug 11, 1863

According to [Edmund C.] Briggs Young blamed Emma for the establishment of the Reorganized Church and said so in graphic terms.

"Emma Bidamon is a wicked, wicked, wicked woman and always was and she is at the bottom of this whole matter - Joseph [III] is led by his mother and is now acting under the direction of Emma"

[Avery, From Mission to Madness, 73, quoting Journal of Edmund C. Briggs, August 11, 1863, in Exploring Mormonism: Polygamy Timeline, http://www.exploringmormonism.com/polygamy-timeline/]
