As part of their surrender agreement to end the Mormon War, Mormons are forced to turn over property and real estate to cover the state's expenses as well as to compensate all the citizens of Missouri whose property was damaged or destroyed by the Mormon insurrection. This provision is later criticized as illegal.

The other provisions of the surrender of the Mormon forces are that they must turn over all of their weapons, and all Mormons who participated in the fighting must leave the state forever.

Joseph Smith and the other primary Mormon leaders have already been arrested and will stand trial in a few days. Major General Samuel D. Lucas would prefer to court martial them and have them shot, but his subordinates have refused to participate in his plan.
