a.      The expulsion from Nauvoo

b.      The Crickets eating the Saints crops

c.       The Utah War—the arrival of Federal troops

d.      The arrival of the transcontinental railroad

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      The Mormon Railroad

Another ambitious excursion took the school to Ogden on the recently built Utah Central Railroad “in the Mormon Car on a Mormon R.R.”
