Trouble's Long, Jagged Shadow
Mormons have long been the odd men out where Christianity is concerned. Their version of the faith didn’t often sit well with their neighbors Back East. Eventually, things got so bad the self-proclaimed Latter Day Saints packed up and headed west. There, they settled on a desolate parcel of land called Utah, and their new leader and Prophet Brigham Young founded Salt Lake City in 1847.
Elder Brigham Young remains the president of Deseret to this day.
