    The were kicked out of nearly every town they settled...until they finally went to the most inhospitable place they could find--Salt Lake City, Utah.  Federal troops had to be sent against them during what was known as the Utah War in the 1850s...because they refused to follow federal laws, particularly those outlawing plural marriage.
