160 years ago today - May 19, 1861

Presidet Youngs address was upon the Resurrection of the Dead. He said that Some had thought that those who had lived in former dispensations would be raised first but this [is] not the Case. Joseph Smith will be the first man raised & he will raise his Friends & ordained them to raise those of there friends who had been Faithful.
