This Day in History: January 4, 1896

Utah, the Beehive State

Utah was Mexican territory when the first pioneers arrived in 1847. It became the 45th state admitted to the union on January 4, 1896. Great slideshow dedicated to the state of Utah.

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Visit Awakenings for the special poetry and great slideshow of the state of Utah.

  1. But why the BEEHIVE state? I always wondered.

    • catnipoflife says:

      The beehive became the official state emblem on March 4, 1959. Utahans relate the beehive symbol to industry and the pioneer virtues of thrift and perseverance. The beehive was chosen as the emblem for the provisional State of Deseret in 1848 and was maintained on the seal of the State of Utah when Utah became a state in 1896.

      I may have bitten off more than I can chew with the states but I am learning a lot. Catnip is on the back burner so to speak. Oh, well. I knew trying to run two blogs would eventually catch up with me. Haven’t visited others in two days. Not good!

    So cool…. 🙂
    I love bees since they’re so enormously important! And it seems we’re about to destroy what we need. *sigh*
