Why did the Mormons move to the west to settle with Utah?
What did the Mormons have to do before Utah could be proclaimed a state?
Some say that the Mormons had to denounce polygamy before Utah became a state. This may or may not be true, as the plans to make Utah a state were in action before the Church officially denounced polygamy. Either way, Mormons arrived there in 1847, Utah became a territory in 1850, Mormons ended polygamy in 1890, and Utah became a state in 1896.
