190 years ago today - June 27-28, 1830

The Prophet visits Colesville and the Knight family. On Sunday they dam up the river to baptize over a dozen people, but a mob gathers and tears the dam down, threatening persecution and harm. Early Monday morning the Saints dam up the river again and baptize thirteen people, including Emma Smith. A mob of 50 surround them and watch.

[Conkling, Christopher J., Joseph Smith Chronology]
