Crossing the Plains Panorama, 1921 (part 2 of 4)

By: Ardis E. Parshall - May 09, 2010

part 1
part 3 (to be added when posted)

This week’s additions will extend your panorama across Iowa to Winter Quarters, as the pioneers build camps at Garden Grove and Mount Pisgah to benefit the Saints following after. They cross the Missouri River and establish Winter Quarters. In the meantime, the United States answers the Mormon plea for assistance in crossing the plains by calling for 500 men to form a battalion for service during the War with Mexico.








  1. Thanks! These are very nice line drawings.

  2. I just discovered a couple of weeks ago that Mt. Pisgah, IA, is just a few miles from where my grandfather was born. My grandmother was born just a few miles from Adam-Ondi-Ahmen in MO. Neither knew about the Church until they were older. Neither knew their places of birth were significant in LDS history.
