In 1830, Joseph Smith published The Book of Mormon. The book professes to be written by the ancient inhabitants of the Americas, written by and for those people. The Book of Mormon has been called "the keystone" of the entire religion. It is taught that if the Book of Mormon is true then Joseph Smith was indeed a true prophet of God, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is indeed the only true church on earth today. The only question then is: Is the Book of Mormon true?
Even before his first vision was ever written down, there were stories of Joseph Smith's "Gold Bible." From its earliest publication in the 1800s to today, the story of the golden plates has puzzled and intrigued millions of individuals. How did Joseph Smith get the plates? What did the newspapers say about it? And whatever happened to the golden plates anyway?
Before The Book of Mormon was published eleven men were called to be witnesses to the golden plates. What did they see? Are their testimonies credible? Did anyone else get to view the golden plates?
