195 years ago today - Circa Jul 2, 1829

Eight witnesses see the plates in a grove near the Smith's Manchester (NY) residence. It is unclear if this experience is purely physical or visionary . Lucy says that the event occurred on a Thursday, perhaps 2 July , and David Whitmer says it was one or two days after the three witnesses saw the plates.
