150 years ago today - Jan 7, 1864

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] [I received] a Cirtificate to the guard to visit Luce in prision who was awaiting his sentence to be shot. I found him vary Cheerful full of hope that his Sentence would be Commuted to confinement in the pententiary. He had no Idea of Dying. He said it would take a man of more nerve than he had to give himself up to be Executed & he should not do it. He did not say how he would avoid it.
