Joseph Smith Chronology
"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. He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people; and like most of the Lord's anointed in ancient times, has sealed his mission and his works with his own blood." Doctrine and Covenants Section 135.
“Mormonism was not destroyed by the cruel martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph,
but here was its vitality. The bullet-torn flesh fertilized the soil; the
blood they shed moistened the seed; the spirits they sent heavenward will
testify against them throughout the eternities. The cause persists and
grows.” — President Spencer W. Kimball.
