Mormon travels, often made at great sacrifice, began in a first move in 1831 from New York and Pennsylvania, and on to Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois. Then came the the great wagon and handcart exodus from Nauvoo, Illinois, to the Great Salt Lake starting in 1846.

This social history shows what the Mormons "lived in" and believed in through these early years.
