These Danes then sailed for Utah. At this time Mormons were not generally welcome and the populace of the locality were rather glad to see them go. The converts were usually subjected to persecution and abnormal hardships. Now, after those 150 years, these 18,000 are going back to Denmark in a symbolic way.
