Civil War in the Southwest

More than 200 re-enactors gathered at Picacho Peak State Park to set up camps and participate in the re-enactments of the Battle of Picacho Pass and the New Mexico battles of Glorieta and Val Verde. Visitors travel from around the country to experience the three historic re-enactments, complete with lifestyles of the soldiers in the Southwest during the 1860's. The re-enactors camp at Picacho Peak State Park with their authentic Civil War camping gear and volunteers from across the state help to make the re-enactment of this piece of Arizona's Civil War history take place.
