Arizona Territory

 Image result for arizona territory
The Arizona Territory was a territory of the United States that existed from February 1863 until February of 1912, when the remaining extent of the territory was admitted to the United States as the state of Arizona… did you know that if the boundaries for the original territory had been maintained Las Vegas would now be part of Arizona… However in 1866, the northwestern section of the territory was annexed by the state of Nevada, and the territory maintained its current size...The following year, the capital of the territory was moved to Tucson, and then in 1889 it was moved to Phoenix because Tucson was felt to have too large of a population of Spanish speakers…Loco!
