Description 16 EZRA THOMPSON CLARK Young <decided that the Saints should go no farther west that season. History records : "On each side of the hills, where now stands Council Bluffs, could be seen the white canvas tents of a Mormon encampment from which arose, at sunrise, the smoke of hundreds of fires." This huge camp was soon transformed into a city of log and mud cabins with dirt roofs. Building was continually going on. "The ax and saw were incessantly at work night and day." Everything was well organized by President Young and systematically executed. The tithes collected were distributed among the destitute in some of the less fortunate camps where many were sick with chills and fever. In the different camps across this three hundred miles of midwestern plains, at the close of 1846, there were twelve thousand people. At Winter Quarters mills were built, gardens planted, and schools established. The women were busy spinning, knitting, or making leggins from deer or elk skins. There were frequent assemblies for dancing, one in which Presi- dent Young said that he would show them how to go forth in the dance in an acceptable manner before the Lord. A dance is described in a camp presided over by Lorenzo Snow. Fresh straw was spread over the ground floor of the cabin. The walls, covered with white sheets, candles placed in scooped-out turnips and suspended from the ceilings or fastened to the wall, made a picturesque effect. Singing and reciting varied the entertainment which began and closed with prayer. The historian records that "on the 17th day of Septem- ber, 1846, the remnant of the Mormons crossed the Mis- sissippi westward, and on the same day the Gentiles took possession of Nauvoo."
