I am introducing a new limited edition canvas reproduction called "One Last Look at Fair Nauvoo" representing Joseph and Hyrum Smith's final and fateful ride toward Carthage, Illinois where short days later they were assassinated, leaving the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) living in Nauvoo, Illinois, bereft and mourning their prophet/leader and his faithful brother.  Nauvoo had grown from a tiny settlement called "Commerce" in 1839 to the second largest city in Illinois in 1844 with between 18,000 and 20,000 people.  Within two years, under the direction of the Twelve Apostles with Brigham Young being the presiding member of the "Twelve", the Mormons left Nauvoo, travelled across Iowa and finally making it to the mountains in Utah in 1847.
