The Palmyra Revival & Mormon Origins by Rev. Wesley Walters (34 pages, 2012). It has been readily accepted among Latter-day Saints that a "religous excitement" took place in Palmyra, New York in the spring of 1820. Mormons are told that it was this 1820 revival that sparked a young Joseph Smith to seek God and to ask which of all the churches were true. However, the accuracy of the "official" First Vision account was seriously challenged when a researcher by the name of Wesley Walters discovered that there was no 1820 revival in Palmyra.
