    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 3
    Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.
    1839 · The Rebecca Riots Take Place
    Age 6
    The Rebecca Riots were a group of protests in west Wales from 1839-1843. The people involved were mostly poor farmers, primarily men dressed as women. The group was called “Rebecca and her daughters”, a title believed to have come the book of Genesis. They mostly fought against the toll-gates. There is only record of one death during the riots: a young Sarah Williams had been warned that the rioters were coming, but upon refusing to leave, was killed.
    1859 · Logan is Founded
    Age 26
    "\""During the end of April, David Reese and his company settled the land north of the Logan River. That area was the second permanent settlement in Cache Valley and the future location of Logan. The city's boundary was drawn by Logan's first bishop, Jesse W. Fox, a government engineer. The name \""\""Logan\""\"" comes from a trapper that used to frequent the area before the pioneers came to the valley.\"""
