Pratt, with Oliver Cowdery, Ziba Peterson, and Peter Whitmer, traveled to the Indian Territory. En route, they stopped at Kirtland and Mentor, Ohio, baptizing over a hundred converts, including Sidney Rigdon. They emphasized priesthood authority, the coming millennium, and the building of a New Jerusalem. In Lorain County, Pratt was arrested for debt, but escaped through subterfuge. In Sandusky, they taught the Wyandot, and crossing into Indian Territory, Shawnee and Delaware. Threatened with arrest for unauthorized preaching to Native Americans, they returned to Missouri. Pratt served several preaching missions, including one to the North Union Shakers. In Missouri, he taught school then led a “School of Prophets.” Conflicts with old settlers erupted, and the Mormons were expelled from Jackson County, the first in a series of persecutions that would define his life.
