Background
Mormonism was established in the 1820s in western New York under the leadership of Joseph Smith; its largest institutional manifestations are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; a year after the church was established, the Mormons left New York to establish stakes in Ohio and Missouri; violent conflicts with non-Mormons forced them to flee and establish a new center in Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1839; after the murder of Joseph Smith in 1844, a large group of Mormons followed Brigham Young west in 1846 and arrived in what is now Utah in July 1847; they founded the State of Deseret, building a tabernacle and temple in Temple Square in Salt Lake City.
