    Interview with Gary Boatright, historic sites researcher for the Church History Department. In the maple-covered hills of Vermont stands a granite monument commemorating the birthplace of the Prophet Joseph Smith. It was here on a wintery New England day that the Smith family welcomed another son into the world. Of his own birth the prophet wrote simply, "I was born in the town of Sharon, in the state of Vermont on the twenty-third day of December A.D. 1805 to goodly parents."
