Brigham Young, the Magic Johnson of the Mormon Church, had an innumerable number of wives, and on this day in 1868, married the last of them, officially his 27th, though he may have had more than double that number given the fluidity of what amounted to a ‘wife.’ His last was Ann Eliza Webb, who would later divorce him and become an outspoken critic of polygamy. He was 66 when he married her.

“What was it put the gun between his fingers?
If with that voice of his, with that appearance,
If ever they had offered him in life
some crumbs of gentleness.
Men live. Men are trouble-makers.
Gentleness is a posthumous honor.”

–Yevgeny Yevtushenko, from “Gentleness,” in from Yevtushenko’s Reader: The Spirit of Elbe, A Precocious Autobiography, & Poems
