Description

Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 8: A Monthly Magazine; January, 1887 The scene we present with this num ber will awaken many memories. And although it is from a view taken in recent years, long after the Saints were driven from the beautiful City, it will bring back to mind the vivid reality of that winter, when many crossed the frozen river, to enter upon their exile and win their free dom from the curse of mobs. The view is taken from the southeast ern part of Nauvoo and shows in the foreground snow - laden trees and vine yards denuded of their foliage by the frosts of winter. A modern Methodist Church stands prominently to the right, and the houses that are seen are those below the bluff on the lower ground reaching down to the river. To the ex treme left may be made out the gables of the Nauvoo House, and above the river's bank Joseph's brick store. Be yond the houses, is the broad and placid Mississippi in which the island is seen, and in the extreme background the site of Montrose. The river at this point is about a mile wide, and a ferryboat plys between the two towns carrying passen gers and animals. The nearest railway approach to Nauvoo is by way of Mon trose which is on the main line between Burlington and Keokuk.
