On September 22nd, 1827, Joseph Smith retrieved the golden plates that were later translated into the Book of Mormon. There are many people outside of the LDS Church who wonder if Joseph Smith was the only person who saw the golden plates, considering his frequent concealing of the plates. We know from the first few pages into the Book of Mormon that there were at least 11 witnesses to the golden plates, besides Joseph Smith.
