Yesterday’s answer:
D   Dug Sego Lily roots
Immediately upon arriving in the Valley of the Great Salt Lake, the Pioneers began the erection of buildings to serve the double purpose of school and church needs. Meanwhile, the first primitive schools were held in tents or by the light of the campfire. Mary Jane Dilworth held school in a military tent in the Old Fort beginning in October 1847, and George Albert Smith is said to have held classes by light of campfire at Parowan in 1851. Speaking of Miss Dilworth’s school, Mrs. Spencer said the following:   “The school house was an old military tent, shaped round like a wigwam, and placed near the center of the fort. The teacher had the dignity of an old camp stool for a seat, but the nine pupils had to be contented with logs. The school was opened with prayer, and the first day was spent learning a psalm from the Bible and singing songs. Writing materials were varied and unique. Some of the students had slates and pencils, and others had pens and paper, but those who had neither took charcoal and wrote on smooth logs or dried bark of the white mountain birch. When nothing better was available for a mid-day meal, the chidren went out and dug sego roots.
