175 years ago today - 170 years - Aug 2, 1844 (Friday)

A political meeting of the citizens of Hancock County, Ill., was held near the Temple at Nauvoo. Great excitement prevailed throughout the county. The mob party was determined to elect officers who would screen the murderers of Joseph and Hyrum Smith and exterminate the "Mormons."

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
