In neighboring cities some grew resentful in the prosperity that Joseph Smith and his males and women had been enjoying. They hoped to find a protected haven on the banks of the river in an Illinois city that they called Nauvoo, “ the city beautiful. ” The Mormons did not flourish for long in Nauvoo. Religious misconceptions additional fueled hostility toward the Mormons.
