Zion to be in Missouri on 9/11/1836

History of the Church 2:145; “…and peace prevails, use every effort to prevail on the churches to gather to those regions and locate themselves, to be in readiness to move into Jackson county in two years from the eleventh of September next, which is the appointed time for the redemption of Zion.”

Prophecy given August 16, 1834. The Mormons were supposed to move to Jackson County, MO on September 11, 1836 which was the “appointed time for the redemption of Zion”. Instead they fled to Nauvoo in 1839.  Zion was not redeemed in Missouri. 

On another 9/11 this time 9/11/1857,  Mormons attacked a group of pioneers who were traveling from Arkansas to California. More than 120 unarmed men, women and children were gunned down and slaughtered because the Mormons didn’t like them.  This is known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre.
