160 years ago today - Oct 22, 1861

The President [Brigham Young] mentioned the Telegram had brought news of a fight in Missouri and the prospect of a big fight tomorrow, the President further remarked that now the contending parties in the States were using Guns and Cannons, but in time they would become so bloodthirsty that they would be ready to tie their left hands behind and fight with Knives until they Killed each other. -- Salt Lake City
