180 years ago today - Nov 29, 1843

A meeting is held over Joseph Smith's store to discuss the petitions to be given to Frierson and to discuss the grievances concerning Missouri in general. Joseph has prepared an appeal to his home state of Vermont, a pamphlet titled "An Appeal to the Freemen of the State of Vermont, the 'Brave Green Mountain Boys,' and Honest Men," in which Joseph remembers his birth in Vermont, relates the persecutions in Missouri, remarks on the lack of protection from the government, relates his imprisonment in Missouri, "where they tried to feed us with human flesh," and ends with an appeal for understanding from the "Green Mountain Boys" of his native state.
