Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
David W. Patten was one of the most influential and dearly-loved leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in its formative years of 1832 -1838. His spirituality and personality propelled him to leadership positions, and he participated in many major events, including:
Marching in Zions Camp
Being called as one of the Twelve Apostles
Speaking in tongues during the dedication of the Kirtland Temple
Valiantly standing by Joseph Smith during the dark days of apostasy in 1837-38.
On October 25, 1838, he commanded the Mormon Militia against anti-Mormon forces at the Battle of Crooked River. Patten was mortally wounded during the battle, but his legacy of faith lives on.
