Many of Joseph Smith’s teachings recorded in the minutes of the Council of Fifty emphasize religious freedom and compassion for all. Read more of Joseph’s teachings here: http://bit.ly/28EIPXW

Joseph Smith wanted American freedom extended to all divisions of the United State’s population. Learn a bit about what drove him to pursue presidential candidacy in the United States. http://bit.ly/2cMeUXk

The name Truman O. Angell may sound familiar at this point. Besides having been the architect of the Salt Lake Temple, he helped with the Lion House and other projects on or around Temple Square. This photo shows a possible floor plan for the Governor’s House drawn in 1852. The design only existed on paper, however; it was not used for the actual building. http://bit.ly/2bKlH3D

“Make HONOR the standard with all men: be sure that good is rendered for evil in all cases.”

Joseph Smith harks back to the Declaration of Independence and the words of earlier U.S. presidents in arguing for prison reform and the end of slavery. He published specific counsel on these issues and others. Take a look: http://bit.ly/2cHL2KJ

One of the earliest tasks assigned to the Council of Fifty was to explore and plan for a future location for the headquarters of the church. Take a look at some of the council’s early discussions regarding possible places of relocation:

William Clayton, an English convert who began doing clerical work for Joseph Smith in 1842, was appointed clerk of the Council of Fifty at its first meeting in Nauvoo. He kept meeting minutes on loose sheets of paper and later copied these minutes into three small bound volumes. These volumes were brought across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley by Brigham Young, and they were retained by him or other members of the council. Learn more: http://bit.ly/28EIPXW

#TBT to when the Lion House was nothing more than some sketches, circa 1855. Check out this collection—including the detailing on the actual lion. (Now if only we could go back in time to try the first Lion House rolls!) http://bit.ly/2cjH0KS
