Millard County, Utah

Millard County is a county in the U. S. state of Utah. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 12,503, its county seat is Fillmore, the largest city is Delta. The Utah Territory legislature created the county on October 4, 1851, with territory not covered by county creations, including some area in the future state of Nevada, it was named for thirteenth US President Millard Fillmore, in office at the time. Fillmore was designated as the county seat; the county boundaries were altered in 1852, in 1854, in 1861, in January 1862. In July 1862, the US government created the Nevada Territory, which de-annexed the described portion of Millard County falling in that Territorial Proclamation; the county boundary was further altered in 1866, in 1888, in 1919. In 1921 a boundary adjustment with Sevier brought Millard to its present configuration. Fillmore, located near the geographic center of the territory, was built as the capital of Utah Territory; the Utah Territorial Legislature approved a plan to locate the capital in the Pahvant Valley.

On October 28, 1851, Utah Governor Brigham Young traveled to the valley and chose the specific site for Fillmore. The town was surveyed that same day. A colonizing company soon followed. Construction of the State Capitol was initiated in 1852; the Territorial legislature met in Fillmore for the first in 1855. The following year they voted to keep the capitol in Great Salt Lake City.

William Hayden English

William Hayden English was an American politician. He served as a U. S. Representative from Indiana and was the Democratic Party nominee for vice president in 1880. English entered politics at a young age, becoming a part of Jesse D. Bright's conservative faction of the Indiana Democratic Party. After four years in the federal bureaucracy in Washington, from 1845, he returned to Indiana and participated in the state constitutional convention of 1850, he was elected to the Indiana House of Representatives in 1851 and served as its speaker at the age of twenty-nine. After a two-year term in the state house, English represented Indiana in the federal House of Representatives for four terms from 1853 to 1861, working most notably to achieve a compromise on the admission of Kansas as a state. English remained involved in party affairs. In the American Civil War he was a War Democrat; as well as pursuing a political career, he was an businessman. He owned an opera house, was president of a bank, developed many residential properties.

English was successful in business, became one of the wealthiest men in Indiana. After nearly two decades in the private sector, English returned to political life as the Democratic nominee for vice president in 1880. English and his presidential running mate, Winfield Scott Hancock, lost narrowly to their Republican opponents, James A. Garfield and Chester A. Arthur. William Hayden English was born August 27, 1822 in Lexington, the only son of Elisha Gale English and his wife, Mahala English. Both his parents were Kentucky natives from slaveholding families of English and French Huguenot ancestry, they moved to southern Indiana in 1818. Elisha English became involved in local politics as a Democrat, serving in the state legislature as well as building a prominent business career. William English was educated in the local public schools attending Hanover College, he began to read law. In 1840, English was admitted to the bar at the age of eighteen and soon built a practice in his native Scott County.

He started early in politics as well, attending the state Democratic convention that same year and giving speeches on behalf of the Democratic presidential candidate, Martin Van Buren. From the end of 1842, English was mentored by Lieutenant Governor Jesse D. Bright, who helped him rise within Bright's faction of the party; the following year, the Indiana House of Representatives selected English as their clerk. In 1844, he worked the campaign trail, this time in the service of presidential candidate James K. Polk; as a reward, after Polk took office in 1845, he granted English a patronage appointment as a clerk in the federal Treasury Department in Washington, D. C. English held this position for four years, they married in November 1847. They had two children: Rosalind. English attended the 1848 Democratic National Convention in Baltimore, where he supported Lewis Cass, the eventual presidential nominee. With the election of the Whig Party's candidate, Zachary Taylor, to the presidency, a Whig party member replaced English at the Treasury Department.

He secured a job as clerk to the United States Senate's Claims Committee through party connections. English and his wife returned to Indiana, where he worked as secretary to the Indiana constitutional convention. Democrats were in the majority at the convention, their proposals were incorporated into the new law, including increasing the number of elective offices, guaranteeing a homestead exemption, restricting voting rights to white men. Free blacks had had suffrage in the state; the voters approved the new constitution by a large majority. In August 1851, English won his first election to the state House of Representatives; as it was the first meeting of the legislature under the 1851 constitution, English's knowledge of it contributed to his election as speaker of the House at the age of twenty-nine. The House had a Democratic majority and, at Bright's direction, English worked for the election of Graham N. Fitch, a member of Bright's faction of the party, to the U. S. Senate; the legislature chose John Pettit, instead.

Holding the office of Speaker increased English's influence throughout the state. The Democrats were victorious in the election that October, sweeping all but one House seat. English defeated his Whig opponent 55% – 45% and joined the 33rd Congress when it convened in Washington in 1853. English's time in Congress, much like the rest of his political career, can be seen as pragmatic. While he morally abhorred slavery, he condemned abolitionists and believed in the notion of “popular sovereignty,” which argued that the people of a state or territory should choose for themselves whether to have slavery, he explained his opinion in a speech in 1854: "Sir, I am a native of a free State, have no love for the institution of slavery. Aside from the moral question involved, I regard it as an injury to the State where it exists…, but sir, I never can forget that we are a confederacy of States, possessing equal rights, under our glorious Constitution. That if the people of Kentucky believe the institution of slavery would be conducive to their happiness, they have the same right to establish and maintain that we of Indiana have to reject it.

The House of Representatives convened for the 33rd Congress in December 1853. At that time, the si

Virginia State Route 662 (Fairfax County)

State Route 662 is a secondary state highway in the U. S. state of Virginia, traverses western Fairfax County. SR 662 uses three different names: Stone Road, Poplar Tree Road, Westfields Boulevard; the southern terminus of SR 662 is just south of an intersection with US 29, just west of Interstate 66. Stone Road is a four-lane highway divided by a narrow median. Stone Road passes through the "London Towne" section of Centreville, past a shopping center as it approaches Braddock Road. North of Braddock Road, SR 662 becomes Poplar Tree Road; this road curves around housing developments to the front of the Sully Station shopping center, where the name changes to Westfields Boulevard. Poplar Tree Road had been a two-lane undivided road but in spring 2013 a reconstruction and widening project was completed, it is now a four-lane divided road. SR 662 continues past the Sully Station shopping center and through an interchange with SR 28 past office parks before ending at SR 657. Approaching this T intersection northbound on SR 662, traffic for southbound SR 657 turns right while northbound SR 657 continues straight.

Westfields Boulevard is a four to six lane divided highway. Prior to 1990, SR 662 followed the southern section of Chantilly; the completion of the widening of Route 28 made Poplar Tree Road discontinuous, separating its Centreville and Chantilly sections. Westfields Boulevard had been built in the late 1980s, but the SR 662 designation was not moved onto it until nearly twenty years later; the Chantilly segment of Poplar Tree Road was renumbered in the late 2000s. The entire route is in Fairfax County
