Because non-Mormons were threatened by their religion and that it was beginning so successfully. Also, because non-Mormons were upset with some on the Mormons beliefs. Then once non-Mormons started fighting, Mormons fought back a little, and then moved because they realized this isn't what they were all about.

In the 1840's, the Mormons were establishing their headquarters in Nauvoo, Illinois. Their neighbors disliked this because so many Mormons were moving into the area. There were so many Mormons that they were starting to influence the culture and politics of the area, and it made those who lived there prior to the arrival of the Mormons feel threatened and like they had been overtaken.

Several factors provided opportunties for conflict between the early Mormons and their neighbors. 1) They were a different religion. 2) Many of the local ministers were worried about losing members of their congregations to the new church - with the resulting loss of income and influence. 3) The Mormons often chose to conduct business with each other rather than their non-Mormon neighbors - creating some resentment. 4) After multiple experiences of sometimes brutal persecution, many of the Mormons became suspicious of and expected the worst of their non-Mormon neighbors and treated them accordingly. 5) When large numbers of Mormons started gathering to a particular area, they would start buying up the existing lands - which through the expected Supply & Demand phenomena would cause the prices to go up and make the land less affordable to their neighbors. 6) When the Mormons gathered to a particular area, they were mostly "outsiders" with their own particular customs and culture - northeasterners gathering to midwest communities, or English moving to America - with the inevitable cultural clashes. 7) Mormons did not support slavery so they were in political conflict with many of their neighbors in Missouri. 8) People who decided to leave the Mormon church or were excommunicated often took to spreading slanderous and libelous disinformation about the rest of the Mormons and their leaders. 9) Some of the Mormons who were the first in an area would look upon the new members arriving in the area as an opportunity to get wealthy and engaged in unethical business practices and land speculation. (A fair number of these people soon wound up in the ex-member category previously mentioned.)

There are many tensions between the countries.

Many Mormons suffered from persecution, not only in the US but in other countries where missionaries where teaching the Mormon religion. Due to the constant threat of violence, the Mormons were always moving from location to location. Eventually Bringham Young called Mormons from all over the world to gather in what today is known as Utah. That involved problems too, because the only way of transportaion was handcart, and very few traved by boat all the way around South America. Many Mormons died on the trip to Utah by handcart. The worst cases were the Willie and Martin handcart companies. A good historical fiction book on the hardships of the Mormons is The Work and the Glory Series by Gerald N. Lund.

the mormons faced many problems, firstly they lived far away from any civilisation causing isolation to all the mormons, they also couldn't recieve any supplies/food or resources from the east as it was too difficult this meant that they had to live completely off the land which proved hard because the land was not the most inhabitable, they faced rivalry from many people because of their beliefs such as polygamy and that black slaves should have freedom.

Approximately 70,000 Mormon Pioneers traveled the Mormon Trail between 1845 and 1869.

Approximately 70,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) travelled the Mormon Trail between 1846 and 1869. Today, many Mormons travel the trail each summer to commemorate what their ancestors did.

Mormons and Catholics have a similar belief that they are the original church that Christ set up. Both believe that you are saved through the atonement of Jesus Christ AND works. Protestants are a break off of the catholic church and share many similar ideas with them but believe that they are saved through the atonement alone. The main difference between Mormons and catholics is that Mormons believe that they have a prophet who is the prophet of the church and for the world who receives direct revelation from God. They also claim to have the restored original priesthood and many other things.

Evangelists are any religion preaches the gospel and converts to Christianity. Mormons are one of many groups that do this.

Yes, Mormons traveled west over the mountains. Many died when trapped at Donner's pass

Many people remember Mormons for the pioneer trek in the mid-1800's. This has caused some misconceptions of people thinking that Mormons are similar to the Amish, but modern Mormons do not dress like pioneers or travel in horse-drawn wagons.

The early Mormon Pioneers were mostly disliked in the Midwest just because of their numbers. There were so many of them that the politics and culture in their area were significantly influenced by them. This angered people who lived there before the Mormons arrived, as they felt the Mormons were 'taking over' their community.

Mormons are not "bad" any more than anyone else is. Many Christians do not consider Mormons to be Christians because some of their doctrines differ from what most Christian churches teach.
