Arizona is rich in history. Do you know how Prescott got its name? Or that a card game played a role in the naming of a local city?
Arizona is rich in history with stories of early settlers moving west to find their fortunes. The Grand Canyon State achieved statehood on February 14, 1912, the last of the 48 coterminous United States to be admitted to the union. Originally part of New Mexico, the land was ceded to the United States in 1848 and became a separate territory in 1863. This issue is chockfull of fun stories of Arizona’s rich history.
