It has often been said that the Civil War was the single most important event in the past of the American people. Certainly nothing else before or since touched the emotions of the nation so deeply. Even now, interest in the conflict remains high, almost 150 years after the last shot was fired.

I was told by one authority that at least 40,000 books about the Civil War have been published. If that’s true, it is hard to imagine how even the best of libraries could find shelf space for more than a small portion of that number.

    My wife and I took one of the very first informal/instructional/ pilot test tours ever of the Glorieta Conflict by a friend who volunteered at the Pecos Monument. It was an awesome experience to actually go out in the field and see where all this history took place. They now conduct formal tours every year on the anniversary. If you have not done this it is a very worthwhile event to enjoy. Tom O'Neill, Austin Texas.
