• Marching in Zion’s Camp
• Being called as one of the Twelve Apostles
• Speaking in tongues during the dedication of the Kirtland Temple
• Valiantly standing by Joseph Smith during the dark days of apostasy in 1837-38.

On October 25, 1838, he commanded the Mormon Militia against anti-Mormon forces at the Battle of Crooked River. Patten was mortally wounded during the battle, but his legacy of faith lives on. Condition: Very good. Item #9430
