Anyway, we went through all over Nauvoo, that we toured through some old-fashioned buildings, even when they have been restored to make it more like a museum. We got to see inside the Visitor's Center a lot of portraits and statues about Nauvoo. We got to see a musical that was played by a lot of missionaries. The musical was totally hilarious and they had some really cool songs playing. Before any of that, my Dad, my sisters, Teach Princess, Prima Donna, and I got to do something special for us. The Nauvoo temple was an open house that we were allowed to do Baptisms for the Dead. The Nauvoo Temple's Baptismal Font was way bit different than the other ones at other temples back West. It was fun to do Baptisms for the Dead at the Nauvoo Temple.
Now I'm going to tell you one thing that happened to Joseph Smith in Carthage. In Carthage, Joseph Smith was taken to a Carthage Jail for trying to preach the Gospel to almost a lot of people. That sounds kind of wrong, but Joseph Smith had no choice. He couldn't deny all of the preaching just to get out of Carthage. At the Carthage Jail, a mob went into it and they were trying to break through the room of where Joseph Smith, his brother, Hyrum, and other Saints that were with him. Joseph Smith and Hyrum had been killed at the Carthage Jail. The mob thought that killing Joseph Smith would make the LDS church stop. Unfortunately, the LDS church never stopped. It had been continued on and on for eternity. Right when we were inside the Carthage Jail, since it is a museum jail, it almost made me cry to hear about the martyr of Joseph Smith. I hope that you understand all about the history of Joseph Smith right when I'm telling you about it.
