    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 1
    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.
    Age 15
    The state known as Utah began when Brigham Young led a group of LDS pilgrims seeking freedom from religious persecution into the Great Salt Lake Valley, where they established a settlement in 1847. The golden spike completing the first transcontinental railroad line was driven at Promontory, Utah, in 1869, leading to a further influx of settlers.
    1857 · Bountiful Tabernacle Groundbreaking
    Age 22
    The groundbreaking of the Bountiful Tabernacle began with the dedicatory prayer given by Lorenzo Snow on a cold February morning in 1857. The building was designed by Augustus Farnham.
