World Events (8)

1923 · The Last Indian War

Age 1

The Posey War was to be considered the final Indian War in American history. It was a minor conflict, but it involved a mass exodus of Ute and Paiute from their land around current day Bluff, Utah. The natives were led by a chief named Posey, hence the name, who took his people into the mountains to try and escape his pursuers. The war ended after a skirmish at Comb Ridge. Posey was badly wounded, and his band was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp in Blanding. When Posey's death was confirmed by the authorities, the prisoners were released and given land allotments to farm and raise livestock.
1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 12

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 
1942 · The Topaz War Relocation Center

Age 20

The Topaz War Relocation Center, also known as the Central The Topaz War Relocation Center was an internment camp which housed Japanese immigrants and Japanese-Americans as a result of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 in February 1942, ordering people of Japanese ancestry to be incarcerated in relocation centers, like Topaz, during World War II. The camp was opened in September 1942 and closed in October 1945. In 1983, Jane Beckworth founded the Topaz Museum Board, and in 2014, a museum was erected in Delta showcasing artworks created at Topaz. The museum became a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 2007.
