History of the Saints
- The Mormon Trail Part 3: Across Wyoming
October 15, 2012
On June 21 1847, President Young and the Vanguard Company camped at Devils Gate Wyoming. They climbed to the top of that 370 foot gorge and stared down. The roar of the Sweetwater River below was deafening. From June 1 to July 13 the Pioneers journeyed across the rugged high country plains of Wyoming bound for their new home. In this episode of History of the Saints we bring you the first of two shows telling you of this crossing—the crossing of Wyoming. This episode features the scholarship of Ronald Barney, Richard Bennett, Mel Bashore, and Ronald Walker.
From the same team who worked on the Joseph Smith Papers TV Series, comes History of the Saints, an ongoing documentary series focused on the epic history of the Latter-day Saints. The first season commences with the martyrdom of Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet, and follows the Saints across the plains to Utah. Subsequent seasons discuss expansion and colonization of the West, development of Utah and more.
Each episode features interviews with some of the most informed scholars presenting the latest in cutting-edge research and contains original signature music scored especially for that story. For those who want to learn about the history that comprises the unique culture and heritage of the Latter-day Saints, this program is a must.
