Martyrdom Room in Carthage Jail
Virtual Historian, 2004
Part of the mob burst open the door of the 16x16 jailer's bedroom "and began the work of death, while others fired in through the open windows. . . . A shower of balls was pouring through all parts of the room, many of which lodged in the ceiling" (History of the Church, 6:617).
