Quincy Rescue. 9-20-15

We toured the Quincy Historic Museum, which has a whole room telling about how the 1,600 people who lived in Quincy in the late 1830s took in about 5,000 Mormons who were expelled from Missouri in the dead of winter. They housed and sheltered them and gave them employment for several months until they were able to travel to Nauvoo. It is a very touching story that most people don't know about. 

Here is the monument where the Saints crossed the frozen Mississippi River into Quincy.
