In the late summer of 1846 Brigham Young and his people were camped at the Missouri River on the edge of Indian Territory. The rest of the Saints were scattered across Iowa all the way to Nauvoo. 500 men had just departed in the Mormon Battalion. Now, short on manpower, supplies, and time, it was too late for the Saints to reach the Rocky Mountains that season. Plans would have to change. What were they to do—and where would they go? This episode of History of the Saints begins the story of Winter Quarters, and features the scholarship of Richard Bennett, Susan Black, and Jennie Lund.
