Mormon Pioneer Monument
Some 250 died on the journey, but nearly 3,000, mostly British converts, competed the 1,350-mile trek from Iowa City, Iowa to the Salt Lake Valley. Many Latter-day Saints today proudly recount the trials and the triumphs of their ancestors who were among the Mormon handcart pioneers.
