Picturing history: John Cooper farm site, Clay County, Missouri
On June 19, 1834, members of Zion’s Camp were protected from going to battle with local Missourians by a tremendous storm that arose near Fishing River.
Following that great storm, Zion’s Camp moved to a second Clay County campsite on land owned by John Cooper, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They stayed there from June 20 to 23.
On June 22, Joseph Smith received what is known as the Fishing River revelation, now Section 105 of the Doctrine and Covenants. In that revelation, the members of Zion's Camp learned that the redemption of Zion would not take place at that time, that they would not need to fight and that they could begin the journey back to their homes.
