On this 150th anniversary of the handcart pioneers, we remember the 10 handcart companies that made their way from Iowa City, Iowa, and Florence, Nebraska, to the Salt Lake Valley between 1856 and 1860. While most of these companies traveled the more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) with little trouble, two companies became stranded in early snowstorms in Wyoming, where many died.
