Title

Life in Old Tucson, 1854-1864: As Remembered by the Little Maid Atanacia Santa Cruz

Description

Lockwood’s goal is to “revive and relive the past” with short, personal biographies of “leading citizens” whose names and works live on, and who wrote their deeds indelibly into the record. Lockwood either personally knew the characters or was able to interview people who did, giving his sketches authenticity and flavor. One person he knew well was Atanacia Santa Cruz, who was born in Tucson in 1850 and witnessed the town’s passage from Mexican territory to statehood.
