Change vs. Progress

"It is not strange... to mistake change for progress."
--Millard Fillmore, born on this date in 1800, 13th US President

"Like most of Utah, Brigham Young extended the call and Mormon settlers moved to Millard County. Fillmore, the county seat was settled in 1851. In an effort to gain favor with the president, Brigham Young named the area after Millard Fillmore. No other county carries both names of an American president."
--Millard County Tourism
