180 years ago today - Dec 11, 1836

[Wilford Woodruff]
... I went up to the house of God to worship & O what a meeting. May it be Printed upon my heart as a memorial forever. For on this day the God of Israel Sharply reproved this stake of Zion (Kirtland) through the Prophets & Apostles for all our sins & backslidings & also a timely warning that we may escape the Judgments of God that otherwise will fall upon us. Even the case of the travels of the Camp of the Saints from Kirtland to Zion in 1834 Was Presented to us for an example. <God set the law in judgment on Kirtland [---] remember this warning [-] judgment must [-] the law [-] God save many for Christ's sake.>
