Before Joseph Smith was killed, he prophesied that the saints would have to move west to the Rocky Mountains in order to find peace. Shortly after he was killed, the local government asked the Mormons to leave the state in order to preserve the public peace. Believing that Brigham Young was Joseph's rightful successor and believing he was directed by God, most of the saints followed him west to what is now Utah. Others who did not agree with Brigham Young ended up following other leaders to other states, most of them to Missouri or Michigan.
