Tryed to survied the dry desert and restart their lives. They had to leave because of religious persecution, and moved to the west to form a new state called "Deseret." They had their own language, money, and alphabet but it just never happened for them. they lived in current day Utah

The Mormons began moving west in 1831. At this time the main body of Mormons moved from New York to Ohio. They then moved further west to Missouri and Illinois. The famous Mormon trek to Utah began in 1845 when many Mormons began leaving Illinois. The first group of Mormons arrived in Utah in 1847.

Persecution. The Mormons were chased out of Missouri and asked to leave Illinois... so they moved further west, where there was nobody to kick them out.

The original migration of Mormons to the west was done by means of covered wagons, drawn by horses; that was the transportation method used at that time in history.
