The history of the Mexican colonies may be said to have begun in 1852, when Bringham Young announced publicly the doctrine of plural marriage. That the Constitution of the United States contained no strictures against polygamy, that it expressly guaranteed religious freedom, that Mormon marriage involved a temple ceremony and held a basic place in the Mormon concept of salvation gave Young and his people a misplaced confidence in their right to offend the mores of an American public not only ignorant of the theological justification of Mormon polygamy but emotionally incapable of accepting it in any case.

Congress responded to popular indignation at Mormon “immorality” in 1862, but the resulting Morrill Act proved an ineffectual bar to polygamy, as prosecution of offenders lay in the jurisdiction of local courts controlled by Mormons.
