Willard Richards Survives the Assault at Carthage
fulfilling a prophecy

 

Joseph Smith had once told Richards that he would be in a room filled with gunfire and would safely escape.

 

Willard Richards

"Dr. Richards' escape was miraculous; he being a very large man, and in the midst of a shower of balls, yet he stood unscathed, with the exception of a ball which grazed the tip end of the lower part of his left ear. His escape fulfilled literally a prophecy which Joseph made over a year previously, that the time would come that the balls would fly around him like hail, and he should see his friends fall on the right and on the left, but that there should not be a hole in his garment."
