Lot Smith
Lot Smith had two army commands during his career. One was in charge of the operations to stall Johnston’s army from entering the Salt Lake Valley. What was the 2nd command he received?
a.                  The Battle of Nauvoo
b.                  During the Civil War
c.                   The Meadow Mountain Massacre
d.                  The Battle of Crooked River
Yesterday’s answer:
(C) 100 bushels of crickets and 50 bushels of mosquitos
When asked by President Young about the yield of crops in that vicinity [Ogden], Ezra Chase, one of the brethren, replied humorously, “It will yield one hundred bushels of crickets to the acre, and about fifty bushels of mosquitoes.” Brother Brigham enjoyed that; he got a good laugh out of that.
