Why Seek Statehood

What: Seek Statehood by applying for admission to the Union

When: UT asked for statehood six separate times…

Where: Territory of Deseret

Why: UT would not have inferior citizens B/C they could elect their own Judges, dictate their own education, Vote for the president of U.S.


And then two opinions of someone who would have been alive:

I think statehood would be fantastic, b/c then the troops would leave Camp Douglas, and the Gov. would trust us.”

Statehood would be a big step for Utah’s people because it would allow us to have more say in how we live our lives AKA: schools and voting.”
