The Constitution ordained and established a provisional government to remain in force until Congress should organize a Territorial Government.

This mining company was part of an incredible story. Confederate Arizona (Arizona Territory) was claimed by the Confederate States of America. The territory was officially declared on August 1, 1861, following the Confederate victory at the Battle of Mesilla. The Confederate hold in the area was broken after the Battle of Glorieta Pass, March 26–28, 1862, the defining battle of the New Mexico Campaign. In July 1862, the government of the Confederate Territory of Arizona relocated to El Paso, Texas. With the approach of Union troops, it withdrew to eastern Texas, where it remained for the duration of the war. The territory continued to be represented in the Confederate Congress, and Confederate troops continued to fight under the Arizona banner until the war's end. When the American government redrew the borders for Arizona, parts - including Mesilla - were placed into New Mexico. (Laguna Collection) Date: c1861 Location: Mesilla, Arizona HWAC# 59481
