The American West
I commit this animated cartoon was published in the early 1840s to persuade population to not become Mormons. The Mormons were unpopular during the 1840s as they had different beliefs to the rest of the settlers. They studyd they had found the second part to the bible in America, no one really considered the Mormons a serious religion until Joseph metalworker set up a church. People were often jealous of the Mormons as the Mormons believed in working hard to obtain success and money.Mormons in like manner followed polygamy comparable the Native Americans, people disrespected them because of this and as the picture shows the man hiding from his many a(prenominal) wives, who are fighting and the children, which are crying on the floor. I believe this cartoon was published in the early 1840s to persuade people to not become Mormons. The cartoon shows an un-ideal life as everyone is making chaos, this would deter people from becoming Mormons as it shows people what is supposed to go on intimate the Mormon life.Because people hated the Mormons for whatever reason, the man is put crosswise as a coward as he is hiding away from what is happening. This cartoon was probably used to create a general impression of the Mormons. I think the Mormons were able to complete their journey across the Great Plains and into the Rockies from what I am shown in the source as the Mormons take care to be wellspring supplied and travelling in large groups.You can tell that the Mormons were well supplied and unionised because they built log houses to keep warm and safe during the winter, we can also assume that the journey was taking them a long time as the log houses are permanent building which would not realize been diffused to build or move. I dont think the Mormon population suffered that mischievously during the crossing despite losing 700 people to illness or starvation as due to polygamy in that location was a lot of children who would grow up to come to the Mormon faith. I think so many people died because of starvation because in the photo in that location is no evidence of food or any sources of food.The source shows us a scene in which the Mormons seem to be doing quite well as the have shelter, protection and maneuver as well as this because the Mormons were friendly with the Native Americans they didnt have the venerate of raids. Source C tells us that some Mormons didnt find Salt Lake as impressive as they first assumed. They said that the nation was beautiful, but there were no resources for building and they were relying on the land to be fertile, otherwise they would have no food. Some of the Mormons would think of ideas that could work, they would then work hard to acquire them as this is what they believed in.Some of the Mormons will have seen prospect in the land and others will have tried to make the about out of what they could see, there is little prospect for log houses, but we can make Spanish bricks, from the journal of William Clayton from the Mormon Pioneer Band which reached Salt Lake first. I believe that the Mormons were disappointed in the appearance of Salt Lake. However they also believed that there was prospect in the land and surrounding area, so they made the most of what they had and since the rest of the settlers hated them they could start a purely Mormon society.
