A historical essay around Zion's Camp, the Latter-day Saint relief expedition that set out from Nauvoo to aid fellow Latter-day Saints that had been driven out of Jackson County, Missouri into Clay County by a lawless anti-Mormon mob. Although unsuccessful in their initial aim, it proved to be a refining experience, and a large majority of the initial Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Quorum of the Seventy were called from among its members.
