Brigham Young - Pioneer Art

At General Conference on October 5, 1856, President Brigham Young announced that, “Many of our brethren and sisters are on the plains with hand-carts, and probably many are now seven hundred miles from this place, and they must be brought here, we must send assistance to them… This is my religion; we must bring them in from the plains. This is the salvation I am now seeking for, to save our brethren that would be apt to perish, or suffer extremely, if we do not send them assistance. I shall call upon the Bishops this day. I shall not wait until to-morrow, nor until next day, for sixty good mule teams and twelve or fifteen wagons.” – Brigham Young
