His Name Was Fitting

The Utah War started in large part from the lies that Judge Drummond fed to President Buchanan. Judge Drummond’s name was William W. Drummond. What was his middle name?
a.                  Worst
b.                  Weevil
c.                   Wormer
d.                  Wart
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   A Tabernacle
Early in the summer of 1845, Orson Hyde was called to procure both canvas and hemp rope for the covering of a tabernacle that Brigham Young was interested in having built in Nauvoo. There was no money to give to Orson Hyde to make this purchase so Orson had to raise $1100 for the Russian Duck canvas and $125 for hemp. When Orson returned to Nauvoo, it became necessary to use this canvas and rope for the construction of covered wagons rather than for a tabernacle.
