Facing Death Against The Door

Joseph and Hyrum Smith Facing Death at Carthage Jail is a YouTube video that includes "Against the Christian Door,"....a powerful painting by artist Andrew Knaupp.  The painting illustrates the Smiths and two other men barricading the door at the jail (notice the bullet hole) to no avail.

Both Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum, were killed by an angry mob while incarcerated at the Carthage, Illinois, jail on June 27, 1844.
