Happy Priesthood Restoration Day!

May 15, 1829, was a momentous day for Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery. As they worked on the Book of Mormon translation, they went to pray and were visited by John the Baptist. John conferred upon them the Aaronic Priesthood, and Joseph and Oliver baptized each other.

Here are seventy-one early Church documents that recount all the known direct statements from the first twenty years of Church history concerning the restoration of the Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthoods. Free to download!
