Civil War in the Southwest


Few people associate Arizona with the Civil War but each year, hundreds of visitors make their way to Picacho Peak State Park to watch the re-enactment of a Civil War skirmish that took place in Arizona as well as the New Mexico battles of Glorieta and Val Verde. More than 200 re-enactors take part in the event, camping at the state park in authentic dress and gear. Visitors can watch the "battles" unfold in the shadow of scenic Picacho Peak and brush up on their Civil War history.

The re-enactment is scheduled to take place March 18-19, 2017 at Picacho Peak State Park located between Phoenix and Tucson. Admission is just $7 per vehicle so bring the entire family and enjoy the day.
