March 4, 1840 (Wednesday) – Joseph Smith, jun., arrived in Commerce, Ill., from Washington, D. C., after a fruitless endeavor to obtain redress for the wrongs suffered by the Saints in Missouri.

March 7, 1831 (Monday) – An important revelation concerning the salvation of man and the calamities of the last days was given through Joseph Smith, jun., at Kirtland.

March 1843 – A “Young Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Relief Society” was organized at Nauvoo, with Wm. Cutler as president.
