The Scout's Prophecy

Before he was in the Quorum of the Twelve, Luke Johnson was the scout for Zion’s Camp. He prophesied what while in Zion’s Camp?
a.                  That he would make it into Jackson County or die trying
b.                  They would return all Saints back to their farms and homes in Jackson County
c.                   That they would convert Gov. Boggs into the Church
d.                  That Zion’s Camp would be a futile effort
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   Poygamous families from Federal raids in Utah
A Mormon Underground was developed to protect those who the government was seeking to arrest as a result of polygamous relationships. This system took place in the 1880’s and was a complicated network of hideouts, code names, and subterfuge designed to protect polygamous families.
