And visitors to Utah's State Capitol are confronted with a heroic bronze statue of General Thomas L. Kane, "friend of the Mormons." A plaque on the base of the statue tells, in brief, why Kane, a native and lifelong resident of Pennsylvania, is given such a position of honor in a state where he never resided.
