On February 4, 1846, the Latter-day Saints were forced to flee Nauvoo, Illinois, leaving behind their homes, their temple, and a few caretakers. Crossing the Mississippi River and into the Iowa Territory, they needed 131 days before settling at Winter Quarters.

Ten months later, on April 5, 1847, Brigham Young led a vanguard wagon company across the Great Plains and over the Rocky Mountains into the Great Salt Lake Valley, with Brother Brigham uttering his landmark statement, “This is the right place.
