Wiping it Out

From the journal of Arnold Goodliffe we learn what was wiped out by the natives when the men returned to the fort during the early days of settlement in Utah?
a.                  The fort
b.                  The settlers
c.                   The bread
d.                  The livestock
Yesterday’s answer:
(B)   The right of women to vote
The following from Utah’s Constitutional Convention held in Salt Lake City on March 4, 1895:   One of the outstanding events at the Convention was a debate, chiefly between Representatives Whitney [Orson F.] and Roberts [Brigham H.], over the question as to whether women should be allowed to vote or not. Whitney said yes; Roberts, no. In the end a clause was included in the Constitution recognizing the right of women to vote—a rather uncommon thing in the United States at that time.
