Members of the Morman religion recreated the journey their ancestors made a hundred years before. Dressed in pioneer clothing and their cars dressed to look like covered wagons, they started their trek in Nauvoo, Ill and ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. The caravan assembled at  the gates of the hallowed ground of the Morman Cemetery. More than a thousand people met them at Miller Park, where the travelers set up camp while in Omaha. July 17, 1947 photograph.
