This Day in LDS History
1808: John Taylor, later the third President of the Church, is born in Milnthorpe, England.
1838: Near midnight General Samuel Lucas holds a hastily organized court martial and orders General Alexander Doniphan to execute Joseph Smith and the other Mormon prisoners. Because Joseph Smith and the other Mormon leaders are not members of the state militia, Doniphan refuses and threatens to charge Lucas with murder if they are killed. Lucas reconsiders and then lifts the death sentence.
1997: On or near this date, Church membership reaches ten million.
