Joseph Smith, having escaped from jail in Missouri, joins other Mormons in the town of Quincy, Illinois. Smith renamed the town to "Nauvoo," which he claimed was Hebrew for "beautiful location".

This is ironic since the location itself is little more than a swamp, filled with mosquitoes. The Mormon community experiences regular epidemics of malaria.
