Not necessarily in 1847 and not in Utah the Territory of Deseret.First you have to define what is a counterculture. The definition of a 'Counterculture' is: "A sociological term used to describe the values and norms of behavior of a cultural group, or subculture, that run counter to those of the social mainstream of the day, the cultural equivalent of political opposition. Counterculture can also be described as a group whose behavior deviates from the societal norm.Answer: Was the Mormons a counterculture when they first established their settlements Utah in 1847? No, because the Mormons were mainly the only ones living in the Rocky Mountain area of Utah at that time. In Utah in 1847 they were the NORM and polygamy was the NORM.
