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?
(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.
