Mormon Church Admits the Book of Mormon is Not Historical   There is no evidence of any actual history in the Book of Mormon.

What happened to Fanny Alger?  Fanny Alger was Joseph Smith's first plural wife.  The Mormon church retroactively lists her as one of his wives even though the well known affair and supposed marriage occurred years before the revelation of eternal marriage.  See lds.org  Marriage in kirtland and nauvoo  Excerpt from the LDS.org (official church site): 'Joseph Smith acted on the angel’s first command by marrying a plural wife, Fanny Alger, in Kirtland, Ohio, in the mid-1830s. Several Latter-day Saints who had lived in Kirtland reported decades later that Joseph Smith had married Alger, who lived and worked in the Smith household, after he had obtained her consent and that of her parents.'
