Let's take a trip into the past...
The history link between Missouri, Illinois and mormonism is very interesting.

Through the vision of Joseph Smith, Jr.12/23/1805 6/27/1844 founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, believed Missouri to be their proposed Holy Land.
They wanted to make it their headquarters and establish a utopian city called Zion in western Missouri.

Missourian's would have no part in it and expelled them in 1833.
However, they returned to claim the land and then begin the Mormon War in Missouri of 1838.

was put in place to exterminate them from the state of Missouri.
10,000 were removed and did not begin to return until 25 years later but the Missouri 44 remained on the books until our bicentennial year in 1976, during the 38th US President, when Missouri Governor Kit Bond formally rescinded it.

Smith then lived in Illinois and campaigned for President of the United States in 1844.
He believed a theocratic monarchy was the ideal form of government for the United States.
Smith declared he would be one of the instruments in fulfilling Nebuchadnezzar's statue vision in the Book of Daniel and that secular government would be destroyed without "sword or gun",and would be replaced with a theodemocratic Kingdom of God. Smith taught that this kingdom would be multidenominational and democratic.

Smith was killed on 6/27/1844, when an armed mob with blackened faces stormed the Carthage Jail where he was being held. He was shot multiple times before falling out the window, crying "Oh Lord my God!"
He died shortly after hitting the ground where he was nearly decapitated. He was buried in Nauvoo, Illinois.
