Wilford Woodruff's Tennessee Mission Journal

Recently I have acquired a copy of Wilford Woodruff's missionary Journal. It is interesting to me how the short entries are reminiscent of our modern Twitter posts. And given that this year the days of the week match up with the days of 1835, I figured I would share his journal as he would have written it; one day at a time in short snippets. For those who are interested you can follow that posts on Twitter under the #WilfordWoodruff.  I toyed with the idea of using #WWWWW [or What Would Wilford Woodruff Write] but ultimately decided against it.

Posts will start on Friday March 27th, the day Woodruff arrived in Tennessee. If you are interested in seeing the posts, you can Follow Me on Twitter.

Good call on the WWWWW.

Very cool. I've seen similar things on where people "re-enact" historical events via Twitter. Looking forward to it!
