The story of the women of the Mormon Battalion left behind when their men marched off to California.


It was July of 1846 when President Brigham Young and the United States Army called for 500 Mormon men to form the Mormon Battalion. The Saints responded, the Battalion was formed, and they marched boldly into history. But what of their families left behind, particularly their wives—what of them? In this episode of History of the Saints we will tell you their story. We begin in July of 1846 with their reactions to the call.
