180 years ago today - Apr 6, 1843

In a Sunday morning meeting, Brigham Young refuses Joseph Smith's requirement that the apostles post bonds to guarantee the donations they collect. In the afternoon meeting, Young refuses to sit with church authorities on the stand. He does not execute his bond until May 30. Joseph Smith tells the general conference, "I'll wring a thief's neck off if I can find him, if I cannot bring him to Justice any other way."

This is also the first general conference to sustain a Presiding Patriarch.
