Reminiscences and Incidents, Nathan J. Mitchell, 1877


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be born and raised, and later travel and preach in frontier America in the early 1800? Let Nathan J. Mitchell tell you in his own words. One of the lesser known preachers of the Restoration Movement, Mitchell tells a fascinating story of his birth, childhood, and youth in chapter 1 of his autobiography–“Reminiscences and Incidents in the Life and Travels of a Pioneer Preacher of the Ancient Gospel”–published 1877.
