Utah National Guard

Hide Profile

The Utah National Guard was officially organized on March 26, 1894 with its headquarters in Salt Lake City, the capital of the territory of Utah. The establishment of the Utah National Guard was a replacement for the Utah Territorial Militias which had existed since the first settlement in 1847. Three weeks after the Guard was organized in 1894, it was called to Ogden to control a large group of unemployed workers, who were moving through Utah as "Kelley's Army." During the Spanish-American War of 1898, several Utah National Guard units enlisted into the federal army and were sent to Florida, California and the Philippine Islands.
