Simpson's Hollow

This location is not an actual pioneer traveling site but is part of LDS history. President Buchanan decided to replace Brigham Young as governor of Utah. He appointed Alfred Cummings and sent him with a army of 2,500. Brigham Young sent out a militia. They burned 23 wagons of rations and sabotaged two other train loads of supplies. In all they destroyed 368,000 pounds of supplies. The army never made it to Utah and the conflict ended peacefully.
