Sacred Stone: Temple on the Mississippi

SacredStone

In September, 1846 the last of more than 12,000 Nauvoo, Illinois residents were forcibly driven from their homes to begin their journey to the Great Basin, blazing what is now known as the Mormon Trail. In 1848, the same forces that drove them out also sacked and burned their temple. Today, more than 150 years later, the Nauvoo Temple rises on the very footprint of its original. Join narrator, Hal Holbrook, for this remarkable story; an historic chapter from 19th century America.
