Unlike the pioneers who went west on the Oregon trail to find new land to farm & ranch. The Mormon migration was unique in that the Mormons were heading into the American West to find a safe haven from persecution. Mobs in Illinois had burned their homes, killed their prophet and had forced them to flee Illinois. The federal government didn't come to their aid, even though the constitution granted them 'FREEDOM OF RELIGION'. They had no other choice.
