  • An angry mobs of people who were against Christianity were attacking and threatening the mormons, forcing them to leave Nauvoo, IL. The angry mob already assassinated their leader, Joseph Smith and now they are burning their homes down. Brigham wasn't aware of the enviornment of the west and he had no specific destination of where they were headed.
  • Brigham didn't know where he was headed so he decided that they make multiple stops so they could eat, sleep, drink, etc. They dug wells at campsites and planted corn so they wouldn't run out of food. It wasn't until they had finished their journey across the western landscape Brigham spotted a shimmering lake. The Great Salt Lake. At first site he knew that the Valley of The Great Salt Lake was where he wanted them to settle.
  • Young led 1,600 mormons to the great salt lake. They settled in the valley of the lake. The year after that, 2,500 more mormons came along and settled. By 1848 their home became US territory after the Mexican War. But by 1877, when Young died, there were more than 100,00 people living there; the majority of them mormons.
