By the late Fall of 1846, most of the LDS were digging in for the winter in settlements along the Missouri River. Winter Quarters on the west bank was literally a wilderness refugee camp filled with thousands. As winter deepened, survival became of paramount concern. Thanks to the journals of those who were there, a rich history of Winter Quarters has survived giving us a glimpse of what life was like in the winter of 1846-47. This episode features the scholarship of Richard Bennett, William Hartley, Maurine Ward, Jennie Lund, Shauna Anderson.
