    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 4
    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 7
    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.
    1861 · St. George Founded
    Age 29
    On December 6,1861, St. George Utah was founded. How it got its name remains a mystery. Some claim it was supposedly named after George A. Smith who was an Apostle for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the time. Those that went down were told to start cotton fields as it might be important with the American Civil War going on.
