The State Governor Believed the Mormons had the Right

Governor Daniel Dunklin
Missouri State Governor Dunklin, at the time of the Saints expulsion from Jackson County, surprisingly stated that the Mormons had the right to do what?
a.                  Bear arms
b.                  Freedom of religion
c.                   To protect themselves
d.                  To be reinstated back on their land in Jackson County
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  Build a church
The Aetna Ward, Alberta Stake:   In late July 1894, Apostle John W. Taylor said he felt the Ward was too slow in building a chapel so he sent word to them that he would be out in six weeks to dedicate their new chapel. The members scurried around, got to work, hauled logs and other supplies and unitedly worked hard to get their building ready and meet their appointed dedication day, September 6, 1894. This original building has been moved and built onto and renovated several times. A new chapel was dedication in 1938 by Elder Joseph Fielding Smith.
