On September 12 Franklin Richards, a member of the 12 and his travel companions caught up with the Willie handcart company. They held a conference in which they insulted and ridiculed the company for their lack of faith. The GAs then said they wanted fresh meat. They made the company slaughter their “fattest calf” which they did and the GAs took the meat with them.
A member of the 12 literally took provisions from the Willie handcart company.
In the podcast we will give the basic background of the handcart trek, how the Lord’s anointed were absolutely trash, and then discuss how the worst failure of Mormon History is celebrated widely every year.
