The Battle of Picacho Peak is re-enacted every Spring at Picacho Peak State Park.

Coming March 15-16, 2014 - Tucson was the capitol of the Confederate Territory of Arizona between March 20, 1862, when the flag of the Confederate States of America was raised over Tucson and May 20, when the Union Cavalry of the California Volunteers drove the last Confederate soldiers out of the City.

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 western-most battle of the American Civil War: the Battle of Picacho Peak.
