The Prophet Joseph Smith was with them on that day in 1829. His name is on the remaining side of the monument, for he too is a witness.
For a century now, a granite monument has stood near the grave site of Oliver Cowdery, preserving his name and those of David Whitmer and Martin Harris on respective panels of the four-sided monument. The three men, in fulfillment of prophecy in 2 Nephi 27:12, were privileged to behold the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated, shown to them by an angel of God.
