Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) faced extreme persecution and violence in the east and Midwest, so they went further west in search of a place where they could practice their religion in peace.

The Mormons were being persecuted and killed, so God, through his prophet, led them West. When the prophet saw the Salt Lake valley, he knew it was the place they were being led.

Mormons settled in Utah. that is why there are a ton a Mormons there. there also alot in Idaho They also settled in Nauvoo but the temple there was burned. The Mormons colonized an area stretching from southern Alberta, Canada to northern Mexico, and from parts of what is now Colorado and New Mexico in the East to California and Nevada in the West, including parts of what are now Arizona and Idaho, and all of what is now Utah. Today, Mormons are found in most countries, and every state of the United States.


His greatest goal was to lead the Mormons from Illinois to Utah. Once that was achieved, he continued to lead the Mormons through peace and prosperity. To that end, it was very important to him that Utah become a state, and that the rights of the Mormons be preserved and protected. To lower the infant mortality rate, he sent many women back East to learn medicine.


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in Upstate New York by Joseph Smith, Jr. Over the next 15 years, the church moved throughout the East and Midwest in search of religious freedom. Joseph Smith was murdered in 1844, and in 1845 the majority of Mormons began moving further west under the direction of Brigham Young. These Mormons eventually arrived in Utah and have now become a 15.5 million member worldwide denomination.


The main body of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) moved west from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois to Utah in 1831-1847 due to extreme persecution they faced in the east.

There are over six million members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) living in the United States, and at least several thousand Mormons in each state. The western US has a higher concentration of Mormons than the east, and Utah has the highest concentration with about 60% of the state being practicing Mormons.


The Mormons left New York voluntarily to join a large group of converts in Ohio. Some left Ohio to settle a new 'Zion' in Missouri, but those who remained in Ohio were eventually forced out by persecution and violence. The Mormons were kicked out of Missouri by violence and a government issued extermination order. They then went to Illinois, where they also faced severe persecution. After their prophet, Joseph Smith, was murdered, the local government asked them to leave the state. They then travelled to what at the time was Mexico (now Utah). They thought that by escaping the country and going to a land that was unwanted by any other white people, they might find peace. They did find peace and were accepted by the Native Americans, but Utah was annexed by the United States shortly after and an army regiment was sent to monitor their activities and act as the government in the territory.

Joseph Smith is the one who directed the early Mormons to move from New York to Ohio and from Ohio to Missouri and Illinois. In Illinois, he prophesied that they would have to move to the Rocky Mountains to find peace, and plans were in place to make the move.

Utah was not a state during the Civil War (1861 to 1865). It was a territory of the United States from 1850 until admitted as a State in 1896. Utah was primarily inhabited by Mormon pioneers and Indians during the Civil War. While many of the Mormons were abolitionists, the Mormon Church advised their men not to enlist in the military forces engaged in the Civil War.

The Mormons played quite a lage role in the gold rush. Their settlements in Utah served as a rest stop and trading post for those heading to California. Some historians have said that without the Mormons, the gold rush could not have been successful, and without the gold rush, the Mormons could not have been successful. The Mormons needed money and supplies from the east, and those heading to California needed food, supplies, and advice about living and traveling in the west. It was a welcome trade for both parties.


Although the church began in New York 66 years before Utah became a state, Utah would likely not exist if it were not for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church). Mormons fled to the area, which was part of Mexico, in the 1840's due to the persecution they faced throughout the east and Midwest. Because these American citizens had established themselves in the territory, it was easy for the United States to claim it as their own years later after the Mexican American War. Mormons founded nearly every town in Utah, organized the first government there, established communication, transportation, production, trade, and education infrastructure. To this day the majority of people living in Utah are Mormons and the international headquarters of the nearly 16 million member church is located in the capitol city, Salt Lake City.


it was impossible for yukmyukMormons to live in the east because of persecution from mobs.
