Brigham Young Journals

April 17, 1847

Summary: Getting consensus on leadership and warning to be careful.

Journal entry: Saturday. The Pioneer company traveled eight miles and encamped.

The Company was organized as a Regiment. I was elected commander of the Camp, Stephen markham colonel, Shandrach Roundy and John Pack majors, and captains of tens were re-elected under this organization.

I instructed the brethren to be careful with their arms, and not to stray off from the camp.
