Season 1 Episode 06 The Great Western Measure


The story of the Latter-day Saints planned move to the West.


Far from being an accidental or sudden idea, the exodus of the LDS to the West was an informed and planned decision. Moreover, it was not an idea originated with Brigham Young, but rather with Joseph Smith who spoke of it as early as the 1830’s. When the Saints went west, it was not the migration of random peoples looking for gold, game, or fur—it was the movement of a displaced people—an entire culture—looking for a home.
