20 1846 In the summer of 1846, Mormons crossed the Missouri in great numbers. Some used a Mormon Ferry. Others came across on the ferry owned by noted fur trader Peter Sarpy. By winter, more than 12,000 Mormons were camped along the river. Severe weather settled in, and with it the diseases and ailments common to the winter season.

A lasting reminder of the Mormon's plight can be seen in the Mormon Cemetery, located in the Florence section of Omaha.

One of them effected an entrance into the dining-room of Rumsey's hotel, and broke several chairs in attempting to sit down at the table to make a square meal of antelope steak. Getting his back up at the toughness of the steak, he overturned a table and smashed the crockery ware."

Traveling by wagon, the show would arrive in town, set up large tents, and begin a two-week run. Shows consisted of vaudeville-like skits, songs, and dance numbers. Between each part of the program, salesmen traveled the aisles, selling the bottled medicine.
