Joseph Smith in the White House

April 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm Assembly Hall Temple Square

In late 1839, Joseph Smith traveled from Nauvoo, Illinois, to Washington DC. His purpose was clear: to petition the United States government for redress for property lost as a result of the persecution the saints experienced in Missouri during the 1830s. A key part of his plan was gaining the support of the president of the United States, Martin Van Buren.

Come learn more about Joseph Smith’s political mission to the nation’s capital, as historian Spencer W. McBride discusses Joseph Smith’s meeting with Van Buren, the congressional hearings on the Missouri persecutions, and the impact this experience had on Joseph Smith’s leadership in the years that followed.
