Title

Confederate Pathway to the Pacific

Description

Based on three decades of diligent research and creative thought, Finch tells the story of Arizona’s three years as a Confederate territory through the activities of Maj. Sherod Hunter, a self-exiled Tennessean and young widower who commanded the Southern army unit that occupied Tucson shortly after Confederate President Jefferson Davis proclaimed Arizona Territory on February 14, 1862. The story is filled with heroes and villains, and Finch thoughtfully provides a biographical appendix listing the major players and describing what became of them.
