1833: Several hundred Jackson County citizens meet and demand that the Saints leave the county. A mob destroys the Church’s printing press, which was being used to publish Joseph Smith’s revelations, and tars and feathers Bishop Edward Partridge and Charles Allen.
1951: Because the Korean War reduces the number of young elders available to serve as full-time missionaries, the First Presidency issues a call for seventies to help with missionary work.
1985: One hundred thousand people attend a Church dance festival at the Rose Bowl in southern California.
