125 years ago today - Aug 27, 1895 (Tuesday)

By order of the war department, and in accordance with the enactment of Congress that a star should be added to the national flag for each State admitted into the Union, a new star was added for Utah. This increased the number of the stars in the national emblem to 45.

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
