150 years ago today - Feb 16, 1873

President Young said ... to the mechanics, farmers, cotton raisers, and others that feel willing, to build up Zion and nothing else, to raise their right hands and covenant that they will build up the Kingdom of God and nothing else. (All hands were raised to the square). Said to the Bishops and others to sever those from the Church who will not cease their wickedness. -- St. George, Utah
