Meg's Book - Chapter 47 - Civil War
Trivia - In January 1861 the first shots of the Civil war were fired. Coincidentally, in 1861 the Church had exhausted the ability to purchase new wagons or even handcarts to carry people across the plains. So Brigham came up with the Out-and-Back or Down-and-Back scheme, whereby wagons and teamsters would travel east and pick up Saints wanting to travel west to Salt Lake City.
