Synopsis: In 1862 a small army of Texans invaded New Mexico in order to win it for the Confederacy. Following the third day of the Battle of Glorieta Pass, the Texans realized their predicament: "Here we are between two armies, one double ours and the other four times our number, 1,000 miles from home, not a wagon, not a dust of flour, not a pound of meat." While the Confederates had forced a Union retreat on the rocky, forested battlefield around Pigeon's Ranch, they could not press their advantage. The most crippling blow had come in the surprise destruction of all seventy supply wagons at Johnson's Ranch by Colorado Volunteers. So complete was their devastation that during a truce in the early evening, the Texans even had to borrow Union shovels to bury their dead.
"A superbly researched and well-written study of the Battle of Glorieta Pass that is likely to be definitive."--Jerry Thompson, author of Confederate General of the West: Henry Hopkins Sibley
From the Inside Flap: A highly readable account of this major turning point of the Civil War in the West.

Book Description University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, NM, 1998. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Stated First Edition; First Printing. Some sunning to front cover; sticker over previous owner's name and address on free back page ; Protected in a removable archival cover. ; 176 pages; There used to be a roadside marker at Glorieta Pass that gave a brief account of the fighting there in March 1862 and concluded with the bold statement, "The battle saved the West for the Union." This book offers a careful reassessment of that claim and of the significance of this military engagement. Over 135 years have passed since Union and Confederate troops fired on each other at Glorieta. By placing the Civil War in New Mexico in historical perspective, this book shows how the Battle of Glorieta Pass was more a tragedy than a triumph. All battles - indeed all wars - have some elements of futility and needless suffering, but the authors conclude that Glorieta seems to have had more than its share. The outcome of the New Mexico campaign had already been decided; thus Glorieta Pass might best be viewed as a bloody epilogue to a star-crossed campaign. Seller Inventory # 607631
