Deseret was a provisional state of the United States, proposed in 1849 by Mormon settlers in Salt Lake City. The provisional state existed for slightly over two years and was never recognized by the United States government. The name derives from the word for "honeybee" in the Book of Mormon.
Sometimes I wish this provisional state had been authorized by the U.S. government, or at least ignored and left alone by the U.S. government.
How different this area in the great American West would be today. Mitt Romney would be President and David Archuleta would have won "American Idol"! BYU football would be #1 in the nation.
