It never was "RIGHT". See, the church Joseph Smith set up and ran in NY, Kirtland, Missouri then Nauvoo was totally lost.
Now they could either have a new restoration of the restoration (Strangites, Brighamites) or they could try to go back to the Kirtland ways Cowdrey, Rigdon tried this, it finally was the RLDS who brought it together.
signs that Brigham started a whole new church.
1) The Mormon Reformation. Making the members who arrived in SLC and the Valley get rebaptized into the church. These were mostly European Converts from England, Sweden, Norway (about 1/2 of the original converts/Mormons had stayed back in Nauvoo). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormon_Reformation
2) The Church and its corporation was dissolved by the U.S. Govt. back during the Edmunds-Tucker Act and was never put back together, but became a trademark for the Office of the Corporation of the President of the Church. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Church_of_Jesus_Christ_of_Latter-day_Saints
3) Dissolving and getting rid of Patriarch of the Church, council of 50, loss of the Patriarchal Priesthood, B.Y. ordaining his own sons as apostles., etc...
