145 years ago today - Oct 9, 1872

Brigham Young and his counselors are each sustained as "Prophet, Seer and Revelator." This is the first conference in 1859 which sustains anyone with that title. The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are not presented in this manner at this conference, and from 8 Apr. 1873 until his death Young is the only church officer sustained by conferences as "Prophet, Seer and Revelator."
