The above is the site of tragedy and triumph. It, along with other sites like it, were the locations of what I feel was the biggest federal, state, and local religious persecution in the United States in the twentieth century.
The place is populated entirely by a Christian denomination. They are currently found throughout the upper interior especially in the states of North and South Dakota. They were once all located in the United States but government and public persecution forced all to flee to Canada. It was only decades later that a sizable minority moved back to the United States.
Who are these people and why were they persecuted? Leave your answer in the comments and see if you are right!
