Rescued by the Skin of His Teeth

How was William Marks rescued from a mob that was pursuing him?
a.                  The Three Nephites saved him
b.                  Porter Rockwell saved him
c.                   The chariot of the Lord saved him
d.                  The stripling warriors saved him
Yesterday’s answer:
A.                  $40 million
The disastrous efforts of the next thirteen months would become known as “Buchanan’s Blunder,” [the sending of the military to Utah] a military mistake that would engage one third of the entire U.S. infantry and cost upward of forty million dollars.
