Brigham Young was the spiritual leader of the Mormons at the time, and Mormons believe that he was directed by God in mapping their migration west. While a small group did travel with Brigham Young, most Mormons were divided into companies (groups) and traveled west under the leadership of a company guide.

Techincally, you could say that the Mormon migration ended in the early 1900's, before World War 1. At this time, Church leaders asked members to stop moving to Utah and instead stay in their home countries or towns so that they could help build up the Church there.


Nobody. The Mormon Pioneers traveled on the Mormon Trail, not the Oregon Trail. In many places these trails closely followed each other, but they were not the same trail.


The Mormon migration occured after Governor Boggs issued an extermination order to kill all Mormons in Missouri. They moved to Nauvoo and established a society and lived there for a good amount of time, and then when the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith was murdered, they moved out across the plains to Salt Lake City. It was the most organized mass migration of people in the history of the US.


Unlike the pioneers who went west on the Oregon trail to find new land to farm & ranch. The Mormon migration was unique in that the Mormons were heading into the American West to find a safe haven from persecution. Mobs in Illinois had burned their homes, killed their prophet and had forced them to flee Illinois. The federal government didn't come to their aid, even though the constitution granted them 'FREEDOM OF RELIGION'. They had no other choice.
