“Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.”  That is a bold statement from John Taylor who witnessed the martyrdom first hand.  Other eyewitnesses gave accounts and feelings of the event.  I have put this photo essay together to take you to the Carthage Jail, and to help you feel the emotions of that terrible and fateful week in June of 1844.  (Roll your mouse over the image below and click on the right arrow to move forward after you have read each caption.)
