P. 1- "The Mormon Battalion was formed 16 July, 1846. The U.S. government had asked the Mormon people to supply four or five companies of infantry to march to California and help secure the area from Mexico. At the time, the Mormon people were being driven from their homes in Nauvoo, Illinois and were in the process of leaving the United States; their destination being the Valleys of the Rocky Mountains."
