Remembers that valor and devotion of her sons who served in the Arizona - New Mexico Campaign of 1861-62

Sibley's and Baylor's Texas troops followed this route in the expedition to occupy and hold the territory of New Mexico (present day Arizona, New Mexico and part of Nevada) and to extend the Confederacy to the Pacific. Baylor proclaimed provisional government for territory of Arizona, assumed governorship, Sibley took military command, one skirmish with union forces took place forty miles west of Tucson, Arizona, and southern scouts ventured within eighty miles of California. The Confederates won the hard fought barrel of Cal Verde Feb, 21, 1862, took Albuquerque and Santa Fe and went on to victory at battle of Glorieta Mar, 28 1862. The discovery and destruction of Sibley's supply train by a Union Flanking force left the Texans without military supplies and subsistence and withdrawal of the expedition became necessary. As Gettysburg marked the high tide of confederate penetration to the north, so Glorieta marked the climax of confederate expansion to the west.
