Mormons reformation movement

Katy Roberts, Madison Stueve, James Beiter, Sarah Pacinda

The Mormons are a group of people founded by Joseph Smith in the late 1820s. Their origins can be traced to primitive Christianity in New York during the Second Great Awakening. Mormonism began with the publishing of the Book of Mormon- in which Smith claimed he had received sacred visions about religion from God. The Mormons began to migrate west after their original church collapsed. They settled primarily in Illinois and Missouri under Smith, and in Utah under Brigham Young, all places where they could practice their religion freely! This movement represented a newfound open mindedness in religion, as well as an increase in western migration.
