|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This bronze statue stands near immigration canyon through which the Mormon pioneers first entered the Salt Lake valley. It depicts the gratitude these Latter-Day-Saints (Mormons) expressed to God after traveling from Nauvoo, Illinois and enduring untold suffering from the elements and trials along the journey. The person with the rifle represents one of the men of the Mormon Battalion that had rejoined his treking family upon his return from the Spanish American war.|
