“All the Good I Can”

In January 1847, the Mormon Battalion staggered into San Diego, California, having just completed a grueling march from Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.

Mormon Battalion Bullet Pouch

Captain Daniel C. Davis of the Mormon Battalion carried this bullet pouch the entire way from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to California, but he never fired a shot in combat. None of the battalion members did. Although the battalion was formed in a time of war, its legacy is one of peace.
