Yesterday’s answer:
c.   1840
When he stepped off the sailing packet Patrick Henry in Liverpool April 6, 1840, Brigham Young was thirty-nine years old. The year and fourteen days he was to spend in England became a high point in a life that already had enjoyed enough adventure to satisfy most men. The British experience served as a helpful and broadening prelude to his world-wide recognition as one of the most successful religious leaders and colonizers in history. It might be said, too, in the light of the emigration plans he formulated at this time, that this was one of his most vital years. His plans brought thousands of skilled and resourceful people to the American West and his emigration plans stood for decades as a model for others.
