The Pioneer Trail is a cherished legacy for the Latter-day Saints. So many trace their ancestry out here, to the trail. Generation after generation loves and tells the 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.
