Speeding up the Anti-Polygamy Campaign

See the source image

What one thing helped speed up the anti-polygamy campaign in Utah?
a.                  The coming of the railroad in 1869
b.                  The Edmunds Bill
c.                   President Grant winning the federal election
d.                  Giving Utah women the right to vote
Yesterdays’ answer:
D   Chief Sagwich son that was raised by pioneers
From the life of Joseph Alma Packer:   Joseph often told how “old Sagwich,” the Indian chief of the Shoshones, limped up to his father’s home one night with a bullet in his knee. He had been wounded in a battle at Battle Creek near Preston, Idaho, on January 19, 1863. He crossed the icy Bear River and walked about sixty miles to the Packer home where he stayed and was cared for until he was healed. Later, he was in Brigham Canyon and was shot at by some soldiers who killed his wife. Chief Sagwich was wounded in the breast but escaped with his papoose and went south and down the mountain into Willard. There he left his baby boy with the settlers in exchange for goods and clothes. The Warner family raised the little boy, and he was known to the settler as Frank Warner.
