    1916 · No-Ni-Shee Arch
    Age 3
    The No-Ni-Shee Arch was a temporary archway near the intersection of Main Street and South Temple in downtown Salt Lake City. The archway was built in 1916 for the Wizard of the Wasatch festival. The name No-Ni-Shee was derived from a mythical American Indian Salt Princess. Her tears caused the Great Salt Lake to be salty. The arch was dedicated to her and sprayed with salt water so that salt eventually crystallized on Main Street. The Wizard’s carnivals enlivened Utah’s summers for several years. The last Wizard of the Wasatch carnival was held in 1916, on the eve of World War I.
    1937 · The Neutrality Act
    Age 24
    The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
