Season 1 Episode 17 Beyond Winter Quarters: The Dissenters


The story of dissenters who chose not to follow the Quorum of the Twelve following the martyrdom of Joseph Smith.


Joseph Smith was killed June 27, 1844. Shortly thereafter, the general membership of the Church at Nauvoo voted to sustain and follow the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. While most members of the Church did follow the Twelve there were those who broke away and sought to gain a following. This episode tells the story of the dissenters and features the scholarship of Richard Bennett, Ronald Esplin, and Robin Jensen.
