Various priests, bishops, theologians and religious scholars have vouched for the authenticity of her "messages" and she travels around the world giving lectures and providing "healing services". Although two Catholic bishops in California welcomed her into their cathedrals, the Roman Catholic Church issued a statement advising Catholics "not to regard the messages of Vassula Ryden as divine revelations, but only as personal meditations", and some critics have called her a "false prophet" and a "con artist".

;center place" of the "City of Zion (Zion (Latter Day Saints))." Many Latter Day Saints had wanted to return to this theologically important ground since their expulsion in 1839. In 1906, at the age of 73, Smith moved to Independence and entered a state of semi-retirement. His eldest son, Frederick Madison Smith, remained in Lamoni and took over active leadership of the church. Finally, on December 10, 1914, at the age of 82, Smith suffered a heart seizure in his home and died. He had been president of the church for more than fifty years and he was admired and mourned by thousands. Prelude, the Fur Trade The idea for the fort arose in 1832, as a business venture conceived by Mountain man−fur trapper (fur trade) Nathaniel Jarvis Wyeth and 70 other men when they heard about the South Pass route to the Oregon Country, and knew the route connected to Oregon places and trails they already knew well. In the aftermath of the Rendezvous of 1832, trappers dodging south of any possible Amerindian war parties via an easy to negotiate series of valleys accidentally discovered Pacific Springs, Wyoming and the South Pass leading back to the North Platte River valley from the river junction, as its county seat. As the number of farmers increased, the fur traders retreated northward. In 1831, Moses Grinter established a ferry on the Kansas River on the old Indian trail by the Kaw's water.

strong defensive

retreating troops arrived on the Little Blue River (Little Blue River (Missouri)), eight miles (13 km) east of Independence (Independence, Missouri). The Union force turned to engage the Confederates again, using a strong defensive position on the west bank. General Curtis, however, ordered Blunt to return to Independence while leaving a small force, under Col. Thomas Moonlight, on the Little Blue. The next day, Curtis ordered Blunt to take all of his volunteers and return to the river. As Blunt neared the stream, he discovered that Moonlight’s brigade had engaged Price's advance guard just after sunup, burning the bridge as previously ordered. Price's main force had arrived by this time and was fiercely engaging Moonlight's unit, which was stubbornly guarding every available ford (ford (river)) in the area. Blunt quickly entered the fray, attempting to drive Price back beyond the defensive positions he wished to reoccupy. A five-hour battle ensued, as Union troops forced the Confederates to fall back at first, entrenching themselves behind several rock walls as they awaited an inevitable Southern counterattack. Although witnesses reported that the outnumbered Federals compelled their enemy to fight for every inch of ground, Confederate numerical superiority slowly took its toll. Gradually, the Northerners were forced to retreat, and the focus of the battle shifted to Independence itself. Little Blue River (Westport). Retrieved on 2009-11-26. See also Little Blue River. National Parks Service CWSAC Battle Summary. Retrieved on 2009-11-29. Davis, pp. 62-54. Price's first true test against this new Union force came at Lexington (Lexington, Missouri), where he drove elements of Curtis' army back toward the Little Blue River (Little Blue River (Missouri)) and the nearby city of Independence (Independence, Missouri). Further triumphs at those two locations positioned Price's army near Westport (Westport, Missouri), where Curtis' main army lay. Pleasanton finally caught up with Price at Independence, pinching the Army of Missouri between two Federal armies, each of which was larger than Price's own force. This brought on the Battle of Westport, also referred to as the "Gettysburg of the West", which saw Price's complete defeat and forced him to retreat southward through Kansas toward the Indian Territory (modern Oklahoma). Further defeats at the Marais des Cygnes (Battle of Marais des Cygnes) River, Mine Creek (Battle of Mine Creek), the Marmiton River (Battle of Marmiton River) and Newtonia (Battle of Newtonia II) followed, forcing Price to retreat all the way into Arkansas and eastern Texas (to avoid additional Federal troops at Fort Smith, Arkansas). The remnants of Price's weary army finally returned to Arkansas on December 2, having lost about 6,000 men. The Army of Missouri officially ceased to exist when these men were subsequently absorbed into the Army of the Trans-Mississippi where Price commanded its Cavalry Corps from December 3, 1864, to March 12, 1865.
