Mormon History, March 1849

[Nauvoo] Etienne Cabet, head of a group of French socialists known as Icarians, brought his group from Texas where they had tried to form a communal society. They moved into the ready-made city, reaching a population of 1,200 at most. They purchased the temple, which had been partially destroyed by fire, and began rebuilding it.
