Winter Quarters

    Episode 1


    Interview with Jenny Lund, manager of Church history sites in the Church History Department. For Latter-day Saints, the small cemetery on a bluff near what is today Omaha, Nebraska, stands as a symbol of forced exile from Nauvoo, a harrowing journey of suffering and sacrifice for thousands. The principal settlement, Winter Quarters, is remembered mainly for the death that stalked the camp, yet it was also a place for refuge and a nearly ideal setting to prepare for the rest of the pioneers' journey to the West.
