Emotional Separation

See the source image

What one aspect of Mormonism created an emotional separation in LDS families during the second half of the 1800s?
a.                  The United Order
b.                  Extended missions
c.                   Polygamy
d.                  The Blackhawk war
Yesterday’s answer:
B   1859
The establishment of Camp Floyd thirty-six miles southwest of Salt Lake City in 1858 by Captain Albert Sidney Johnston brought the Pony Express mail and better continental stage service to the valley making it more profitable for traders and merchants to establish themselves in Utah. “Among these were some Jews, one of the first being Nicholas Siegfried Ransohoff. There is evidence that Ransohoff brought a load of freight to Camp Floyd in 1858, for his name is on the list of Masons there in April 1859.” The first Masonic Lodge in Utah was established in Camp Floyd and was operating in 1859. Ransohoff later built a building on the west side of Main Street in Salt Lake City. This solidly built stone building was purchased by the Church in 1867 for $75,000 and became the site of the first ZCMI store.
