He Couldn’t Keep Back the Tears

In 1928, Central States Mission President, Samuel O. Bennion, states that he couldn’t keep back the tears after he witnessed what in Nauvoo?
a.                  After witnessing the exhumation of Joseph and Hyrum’s bodies
b.                  After witnessing the first pageant put on by the Church
c.                   After visiting the site of the Nauvoo temple for the first time
d.                  After he witnessed an archeological dig that he participated in unearth Joseph Smith’s sword
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Alexander Doniphan
Just how close of friends were Joseph Smith Jr. and Alexander Doniphan, the non-member lawyer/militia General?
They were close enough that Joseph and Emma named their son born June 2, 1838, Alexander.
