Hell on Wheels season 4 is full of real people of our history. For example, John Allen Campbell (actor Jake Weber on the TV show), who was the first Governor of the Wyoming Territory; Eva (actress Robin McLeavy), her true name was Olive Oatman and was born in Illinois; Thomas C. Durant (Colm Meaney)… Also, Brigham Young, the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1847 to 1877.

Hell on Wheels season 4. Brigham Young, and The Swede

In Hell on Wheels season 4, Brigham Young has a bold personality, the same as the historic priest. In fact, his followers called him “Lion of the Lord”. The character is played by Gregg Henry, very well characterized, and has decided to protect Thor “The Swede” Gundersen, the ruthless enemy of Cullen Bohannon. Will he be another problem for Cullen Bohannon? We’ll see! Nothing good can be expected if he is next to the Swede, what a psycho man!

Maybe it would be interesting to know something about the real Brigham Young now:

He was born in Whitingham, Vermont, in 1801, and was drawn to Mormonism after reading the Book of Mormon shortly after its publication in 1830.

In 1844, while in jail awaiting trial for treason charges, Joseph Smith, president of the church, was killed by an armed mob. Then, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will lead the church with Young as the Quorum’s president.

Afterwards, he founded Salt Lake City and served as the first governor of the Utah Territory.

Brigham Young also led the founding of the precursors to the University of Utah and Brigham Young University.

But he was a polygamist and was involved in controversies during the Utah War, and the Mountain Meadows massacre.

We’ll see his behavior in Hell on Wheels season 4 when he and ‘The Swede’ will face Cullen Bohannon.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time.
