Description IT BEGAN AT A MEMORABLE TIME That these were wise investments was proven when more than 11,000 visitors passed through Saltair's gates on the Fourth of July. Officials applauded the organized movement of the unexpectedly large crowd made possible by the railroad and Salt Lake City's streetcar system. By year's end some 100,000 had visited the unique amusement park -- a figure that would be multiplied many times over in years to come. When it closed in 1959, Saltair was the last resort operating on Great Salt Lake. Sandy, a settlement on the southern edge of the Salt Lake valley along the Union Pacific's line leading into Utah County, became an incorporated city in 1893. Today its population has passed 75,000. In that year, too, Stephen Crane wrote "The Red Badge of Courage," in which the bloodshed and confusion of Civil War fighting is told through the eyes of an infantryman, Henry Fleming. Its honest portrayal replaced romantic illusions of gallantry with the brutal reality and, sometimes, the sheer panic of often face-to-face confrontations between masses of troops. Readers thought his realistic depiction was the result of personal experience. Actually, Crane wasn't born until 1871, well after the Civil War had ended, so he obviously wasn't in the conflict. However he later served as a correspondent covering fighting in foreign lands, which lent authenticity to his battle descriptions. The killing of an English detective by a Scottish physician-turned-writer in 1893 resulted in such widespread indignation that he was soon brought back to life. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had created Sherlock Holmes in 1887 and six years later chose to make his hero the victim of one of the many criminals he'd so cleverly tracked down in previous stories. Public demand forced Doyle to revive the pipe-smoking resident of 221 Baker Street in a subsequent tale. In all, Sherlock would appear in four Doyle novels and 56 short stories. A century later, he's still much in evidence as new plots are created by modern authors. Music lovers were entranced that year by the introduction of a symphony, From the New World, by Czech-born Antonin
