revelation. It tells the story of a group of Hebrews who migrated to
America c. 600 bc and is taken as scriptural alongside the Bible. The
Mormons came into conflict with the U.S. government over their prac-
tice of polygamy (officially abandoned in 1890) and moved their
headquarters from Illinois to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1847 under
Smith's successor, Brigham Young. Mormon doctrine emphasizes tith-
ing, missionary work, and the Second Coming of Christ.
