The Call to Arms

When the call came for the Mormon Battalion to take up arms in San Diego, who were they going to fight?
a.                  Mexicans
b.                  Canadians
c.                   U.S. Troops
d.                  Spaniards 
Yesterday’s answer:
(A)   It was Eagle Gate in Downtown Salt Lake City
The Eagle Gate monument originally served as a gateway to Brigham Young’s farm. In the 1890’s it became a toll gate with the proceeds of the funds to go to maintaining public roads.

“Eagle Gate Dedication Services.” Salt Lake City: Utah State Department of Highways Reproduction Department, 1 November 1963.
