|Daguerreotype of Joseph Smith, Jr. Taken in Nauvoo|
Shortly Before the Prophet's Martyrdom
This evening I also showed my friends the new Joseph Smith Chronology published by BYU Studies. This remarkable database of nearly 1,500 entries goes through the Prophet's action-packed life day by day and details what happened on that day. References come from the many sources that were studied to compile the Joseph Smith Papers Project.
