Yesterday’s answer:
(B)   Zion’s Camp
In Zion’s Camp, [Brigham] Young observed how [Joseph] Smith managed a group of more than two hundred people in transit. Young used that system himself later on. He said, “I have travelled with Joseph a thousand miles. . .  I have watched him and observed everything he said or did. . . . It has done me good. . .  and this was the starting point of my knowing how  to lead Israel.”
