    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 2
    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 · Nauvoo is Settled
    Age 5
    After the Saints had been chased out of Missouri they moved to a swampy area located next to the Mississippi River. Here they settled and named the place Nauvoo which translates into the city beautiful.
    1859 · Logan is Founded
    Age 25
    "\""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.\"""
