Description Thursday At lunch time this morning while we ate our bread and honey, B.Y. dropped in. He had been up till 12 the night before, organising a "Co-op" herd at Bishop Windsor's.31 They will turn over to it all the Church herd here. He offered to accompany me to see a sick woman, whom I have visited several times, but I had promised to walk with our that the Utah settlers refused to accept any authority but the Mormons, President James Buchanan in 1857 ordered the army under the command of Colonel Albert Sidney Johnston to march to Utah and install newly appointed federal officials, including a new governor, Alfred Cumming. Brigham Young forbade the army entrance to Utah and called in the outlying Mormon colonies, moved the Mormons south, and sent guerrilla bands to harass the army by burning forage and stealing the army's animals and supplies. The army was ill- equipped and the harassment forced them to winter at Fort Bridger, Wyoming. At this point Colonel Kane secured permission from President Buchanan to attempt a peaceful solution. Hc traveled by ship to Panama, crossed the Isthmus, then took a ship again to San Francisco and then Los Angeles, traveling overland with a servant through St. George to Salt Lake City, where he met with Brigham Young. Kane negotiated with the army on behalf of the Mormons near Fort Bridger. Twice traveling between Salt Lake and Fort Bridgcr, he finally mediated a settlement. The new governor was installed and the army marched through a deserted Great Salt Lake City and established Camp Floyd in Cedar Valley, forty miles from Salt Lake City. The camp was almost directly across Utah Lake from Provo. It was abandoned in 1861, shortly after the outbreak of the Civil War. Colonel Johnston (later general) joined the Confederacy and was killed heroically at Shiloh. Colonel Kane became one of Pennsylvania's heroes, emerging a major general. Greatly respected by Mormon church members, a southern Utah county was named for him, and his statue stands in the central hall of the Utah capitol. Morgan, Utclh Guide, 70-73. "Anson P. Winsor's ranch, in what is now' the Kaibab Indian Reservation in northern Arizona, was known as Winsor's Fort. Today it is Pipe Springs National Monument. It is seventeen miles southwest of Kanab on Arizona Highway 389. On January 2, 1873, while the Kanes were in St. George, a meeting was held in the St. George Tithing Office and the Winsor Cattle Stock Growing Company was organized with the church holding 10,000 of the 17,450 shares. Rrigham Young, Sr.. was elected president and Anson Winsor director and superintendent with $1,200 per year compensation. St. George Stake records, January 2, 1873. 18
