The Joseph/Hyrum Smith Funeral Sermon

Author Richard S. Van Wagoner Author Steven C. Walker

As the hearse bearing the "bodies" of Joseph and Hyrum Smith (actually sandbagged coffins) passed the Nauvoo meeting ground the afternoon of Saturday, 29 June 1844, "William W. Phelps was preaching the funeral sermon." The choice of Phelps as eulogist to the Prophet and the Patriarch is strange, the content of his sermon stranger, the tone of that sermon strangest of all.
