Liberty Jail is at the symbolic center of Documents, Volume 6. During the winter of 1838?1839, Joseph Smith was confined to the jail?s dungeon and separated from Latter-day Saints who were finding refuge outside of Missouri. In this time of crisis, he used letters to maintain family ties and to sustain the church. Come learn more about how the letters illuminate Joseph?s own struggle to comprehend the Saints? afflictions and the revelations he received in the jail.
