Season 1 Episode 26 The Trail Diarists


The story of those who wrote the story of the 1847 Vanguard Company—the Trail Diarists.


The Pioneer Trail is a cherished legacy for the Latter-day Saints. Many saints trace their ancestry to the trail. Generation after generation loves and tells pioneer stories to their children, passing on the legacy. In this episode of History of the Saints we tell the story of those who wrote the story—the Trail Diarists. The 1847 Vanguard Company was one of the most documented events in LDS and western history. Why?  Because someone took the time to write it down. This episode features the scholarship of James Allen, Richard Bennett, and Ronald Barney.
