Union Cavalry At Picacho Peak Reenactment 2012.

Union Cavalry At Picacho Peak Reenactment 2012.

Tucson was the capitol of the Confederate Territory of Arizona between February 20, 1862 when some 120 Texas Rebels took control of El Presidio San Agustin del Tucson and late April, when the 1,800-strong Union army of the California Volunteers entered this dusty, dirty little Mexican town without firing a shot.

During that short period, 50 miles NW of Tucson, an engagement was fought between a Union cavalry patrol and a party of Confederate pickets from Tucson. Every year in March, dedicated men & women from all over come together at Picacho Peak State Park to reenact The Battle of Picacho Peak.
