Spent afternoon in buisness, chatting with brethren, and making calculations for celebration of 24 inst. Tuesday 7. Recieved letter from T. D. Brown, Isaac Bullock4' 421saac Bullock was called as one of the leaders to take pos- session of Fort Bridger and settle nearby. In 1853 he led the group that founded Fort Supply located about t\velve miles south of Bridger. He was elected representative from Green Ri\.cl County to the Utah territorial legislature. With the approach of federal troops on Fort Bridger and Fort Supply in the fall of 1857, Bullock leas ordered to gather the colonists and supplies that collld bc moved and retrwn to Salt Lake City. The fort, sheds, barns, haystacks, etc., lvere put to the torch so the army would not benefit from the Mormon colonists hard labor for the past four years. See Isaac Bullock Papers, 1825-1891 (dialy and brief biography), facsimile in Special Col- lections Department, Marriott Library, and James S. Brown, Life of a Pioneer, Being the Autobiography of James S. Broren (Salt Lake City: George Q. Cannon Rr Sons Co., 1900), pp. 304-45. Jesse W. Crosby \vas one of those present at the burning of Fort Bridger and Fort Supply. He gives a good description. Jesse W. Crosby Journal, 1820-l 860, holograph, L. D. S. Archives, p. 78. John Pulsipher, another eyewitness chronicler on the final days at Fort Supply, has left us his account. John Pulsipher, "A Short Sketch of the History of John Plllsipher ," typc- script, Madeline McQuown Papers, Special Collrrtions Depart- ment, Marriott Library, entries for the months of September and October of 1857. The best secondary account that reprodrlccs many primary documents is Fred R. Gonans and Eugene E. Canlpbell, Fort Bridger: Island in the Wilderness (Provo, Utah: Brigham Young University Press, 1975). Chapter six deals with the acquisition of Fort Bridger and chapter seven with its destruction. Especially valuable is the correspondence, reproduced here, of I,c\vis Roljison who was in charge of Fort Bridger.
