Bottle Auction: ARIZONA TERRITORY 1881 J.F. Yorba Druggist Tucson super rare western drug bottle


ARIZONA TERRITORY 1881 J.F. Yorba Druggist Tucson super rare western drug bottle Bottle Auction Description: This bottle was dug by me in a very early Tucson privy that dated back to the 1870's. The privy was located inside the old Presidio of Tucson because the presidio wall itself was in within a few feet. Juan Yorba was one of Tucson's first hispanic druggist's and this bottle was only made in 1881. This is a super rare medicine bottle from and marked; Arizona Territory. The bottle is approximately 5 1/4 inches tall and has no cracks or chip damage. It is stained from being in the ground for 130 years but with a tumble will return it to mint condition. Buyer pays $6 priority USPS shipping. Check out my feedback, please ask any questions you would like about the bottle. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.THE PRESIDIOA company of Spanish Army soldiers, led by Captain Hugh O'Conor, an Irish mercenary working for Spain, selected the location of the Presidio San Agustin del Tucson on 20 August 1775. The site was on the east terrace overlooking the Santa Cruz River floodplain. Nearby was the O'odham village of S-cuk Son (Tucson) at the San Agustin Mission.The following year, soldiers marched north from the Presidio at Tubac and began construction of the fort. Initially, it consisted of a scattering of buildings, some inside a wooden palisade. Mismanagement of the funds that were to be spent on adobe walls stalled their construction. A near disastrous attack by Apache raiders in June 1782 resulted in renewed efforts to complete the fort, which was accomplished in May 1783. The fort measured about 670 feet to a side with square towers at the northeast and southwest corners. The main gate was on the center of the west wall, the presidial chapel was located along the east wall, the commandant's house was in the center, and the interior walls were lined with homes, stables, and warehouses. The massive adobe walls required constant maintenance, especially in times when attacks by Native Americans were anticipated, mostly from [First Battle of Tucson|several]] Apache attacks. The fortress remained intact until the American arrival in 1856, two years after the Gadsden Treaty transferred southern Arizona to the United States. Afterward, it was rapidly dismantled, with the last standing portion torn down in 1918.Under Spanish rule, about 100 sTucson flourished under Spanish reign but the population never reached more than 500, not until the United States controlled the city. The colony managed to grow with the help of the fort and its occupants who launched several expeditions into Indian country to fight the Seri's, Opatas, Papago and primarily the Apache. The expeditions helped keep the hostile natives from the area, to prevent raids on Spanish property and civilians. Not all native tribes were unfriendly though, throughout the Spanish period the Pima's were mostly peaceful with the exception of two rebellions long before Fort Tucson was constructed. Over Tucson's history, several different native American groups lived in the city and the down river at the villages of Tubac, Tumacacori and elsewhere. Groups of Pimas, Apaches, Papago, Oaptas, Seris and others all eventually lived at the Spanish settlements in the Santa Cruz River Valley. Many of the men became scouts for the Spanish Army during the wars against the hostile tribes. At one point the entire garrison of Fort Tubac consisted solely of Papago warriors. By the time the Spanish period ended in 1821, most of the native groups were hostile again and old Spanish frontier settlements were being abandoned. The population of Tucson and Tubac each reached about 350 at their peaks. Tumacacori had about 100 Spaniards during its best years, the remaining population of the forts and villages were native American who usually outnumbered the Spanish by dozens to hundreds. San Xavier Mission in 1913.Fort Tubac was abandoned several times over 110 years due to repeated attacks at or near the fort. The garrisons remained relatively small, usually cavalry and some artillery. Captain Pedro Allande y Saabedra took command of Tucson after O'Connor, Allande commanded Fort Tucson during four different attacks. He also commanded many of the advances into Apacheria and Seri country. Native warriors also contributed to Fort Tucson's defense several times during its history of fighting Apaches, sometimes because the natives allied with the Spanish were already long-time enemies with the Apache. The wars grew into sort of a stalemate; eventually the Spanish growth in the presidio topped off resulting in the small company size garrisons. The Spanish at any given point had fewer than 300 soldiers in all their presidios and settlements in the area. Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate was built along the San Pedro River southeast of Tucson in 1776, by 1780 it had already been abandoned due to Apache attacks. Presidio de San Bernardino was built just east of the present day Douglas, Arizona in 1776 but was also abandoned in 1780. The contingents from most native groups which helped the Spanish were typically very small, about fifteen men but the Pimas contributed dozens of warriors to Captain Allande during the years who fought in most if not all of the frontier expeditions. Despite being outnumbered by the thousands the Spanish held the majority of their settlements but could not decisively defeat the natives in order to stop them from raiding. Tucson became a Mexican town in 1821.[edit] Mexican PeriodFile:Presidio San Agustin del Tucson.jpg San Agustin church in the early 19th century.When Mexico achieved its independence from Spain in 1821, Fort Tucson still had a Spanish garrison that accepted Mexican freedom, likely because the Spanish aristocracy's hold on northern Sonora wasn't broken as result of the war. The aristocracy supported the independence of their country which fueled the rebellion, many also led the armies that won the war. Since 1775 and even longer due to the Pima villages, Tucson has always been inhabited, unlike several other Spanish settlements in the area. Durinhg the Mexican period at least seventy-five percent of Tucson was populated by native Americans. After independence Mexico slipped into a depression and frontier colonization quickly became under supplied with both men and food, old alliances between Spain and the natives ended. Other tribes continued to be peaceful, the Pimas remained friendly along with Yaquis and a few other groups in southern Arizona. Apaches remained a serious threat and most of the Spanish frontier settlements in Arizona and New Mexico were abandoned and the populations fled south. Generally the Mexicans remained only in the coastal states of Texas and California, creating more Indian country in between Mexico City and California. Landlocked settlements in what is now northern New Mexico survived with Tucson and a few other mission towns such as the San Xavier and the Tumacacori Mission. Apaches continued raiding and skirmished with Mexicans just outside Fort Tucson several times, they raided the livestock just like they did the Spanish herds. The Mexicans were less able to defend themselves due to the depression.By the time the war between the United States and Mexico began in 1846, the depression was over and Mexican Army forces occupied the Tucson presidio. The area was prospering and held its largest garrison of around 200 dragoons or infantrymen with two cannons. In 1846 as the United States Army's Mormon Battalion moved through present day Arizona, they nearly fought a battle with the Mexican army as they approached the fort from the southeast. The Americans were on their way to reinforce the United States Navy's campaign against California. Mormon forces captured the presidio just after the Mexican commander Captain Antonio Comaduron decided not to fight,instead he withdrew his garrison to San Xavier and then to Tubac. The Mormons eventually left Tucson and it was reoccupied by the Mexicans. The war ended with a United States victory and the Mexican Cession in which the Mexican Government sold the Americans most of what is now the southwest United States in 1848. Tucson became part of the American New Mexico Territory after the Gadsden Purchase in 1853. Though the land was purchased the Mexican garrison did not leave Fort Tucson until 1856. By then most of the population was Anglo and Pima, basically all Apache groups were now hostile along with former colonist allies such as the Navajo and Opatas. The California Gold Rush in 1849 brought thousands of Anglos to New Mexico Territory and California, they recognized the mineral wealth in the region and began establishing mining towns.[edit] American Period Tucson in 1864.The United States Army took control of Fort Tucson in 1856 after eighty-one years in existence and the city began to thrive once more. Famous military figures, prospectors, outlaws and warriors would all become part of Tucson's culture more than ever before. With the discovery of precious minerals in the area in the 18th century by the Spanish and in the 1860s by Americans, mining camps and later mining towns were built all across the desert frontier around Tucson. From 1850 to 1920, mining camps became the cewnter of industrialization, before; agriculture and ranching provided the best opportunity of prosperity along the Santa Cruz. The period from 1870 and on is when the speed of settling the frontier became most rapid around Tucson. Most of Arizona's towns and cities were built at this time. Hostile natives remained a problem for the development of unsettled land and continued justly until the late 1880s. Tubac was populated by Americans just after the Mexican War. A mining company town was made of the presidio which again made Tucson a little less isolated. During the early American period, the population grew for the first several years until a major outbreak of the Apache Wars between the Chiricahuas and the American Civil War which ended up creating Arizona into the state it is today. The Chiricahua Apache were commanded by the War Chiefs Mangas Coloradas, Cochise and Geronimo. They and their allies fought primarily a guerrilla war against the remaining Mexican and new American settlements throughout the Gadsden Purchase area, all of which was considered traditional lands of the Apache. The American Indian Wars ended in Arizona where military campaigns against native Americans continued as late as 1918.The great war against the Chiricahua began in 1860. After a raiding campaign into American territory against frontier settlements and the Bascom Affair in which Cochise's brother was killed, Chiricahua Apache bands began to form alliances with each other. They built an army of unknown strength which was commanded by Cochise and another chief ally, Mangas Coloradas. The Apaches then began a campaign to rid Apacheria of all the whites and Mexicans. Attacks on settlers started around what is now southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico in the Apache heartland of the Dragoon Mountains, the Dos Cabezas Mountains, the Chiricahua Mountains and Apache Pass. In the area is where the main settlers trail east and west was located. Apaches killed, captured and tortured at least a 100 people within a year along the trail in and near Apache Pass. Hundreds more settlers were being killed elsewhere across the vast area Apaches controlled. Thousands of settlers were killed in total over the fifty years of conflict, no exact number will ever be known. Tucson was again under what was considered serious threat of attack. Apaches controlled all of the mountains around Tucson in the early 1860s, especially after the withdrawal of United States troops in 1861. Only white settlers, the remaining Tucson Mexicans, and the dwindling Pima tribe inhabited the Tucson area and the Santa Cruz Valley. Apaches were at their high point and controlled almost everywhere around the region but influence was weaker northwest of Tucson in what is now the Tohono O'odham reservation. The O'odham were generally peaceful, the Pimas are one of the larger O'odham bands as of today. When the American Civil War began, all of the forts protecting Tucson were abandoned and the Butterfield Overland Mail company closed just after. Both events left the isolated Tucson area with no military support against the Apache army. Tucson in 1880.Beginning just after the 1856 establishing of American Tucson, settlers in southern New Mexico Territory began petitioning the government for separation. They hoped to establish a new territory in Traditional Arizona. The petitions, signed in Tucson and Mesilla, were rejected by the United States government but accepted by the Confederates. Confederate Arizona Territory south of the 34th parallel was created but did not become official until the First Battle of Mesilla in July 1861. The Apache took advantage of the withdrawal of Union troops. By then Mangas and Cochise had increased their raids and attacks on settlements so Confederate reinforcements were eventually sent to the area. Fort Tubac was besieged in August 1861 and abandoned again along with the Tumacacori mission. This left Mesilla, New Mexico and Tucson as the only major settlements in southern New Mexico Territory. Tubac's surviving populace was rescued by Tucson militia under Captain Granville H. Oury. The survivors left for Mesilla just after only to be attacked again in Cookes Canyon. Many of the male Tubacan refugees became militiamen in the Arizona Rangers and the Arizona Guards. From 1861 to 1863, several other towns were attacked by Apaches but they were usually defeated by minutemen, Confederate or Union forces. A company of Confederates under Captain Sherod Hunter reinforced the militia of Fort Tucson in late April 1862 and held a flag raising ceremony on May 1. The company was composed primarily of militia from Dona Ana, the Arizona Rangers, of which men from Tubac had joined after escaping their town a year earlier. The rest included Texas cavalrymen, the company counted to about seventy-five men. A major Apache attack on Tucson is believed to have been thwarted due to the arrival of Captain Hunter's company.With such a limited force of men Hunter had orders to establish an alliance with the native Americans in the region, particularly the Pimas. He also was directed to observe the advance of the California Column under James H. Carleton which had already began their invasion of Confederate Arizona. Hunter dispatched several parties on foraging missions, they skirmished with Apaches twice in the Dragoon Mountains, he also sent a request east for more reinforcements. Other squads were sent to burn the Butterfield Overland Mail stations along the trail west where the Californians were advancing from. A Union spy before the Californian advance purchased several thousand pounds of grain and food before the campaign. It was stored in the abandoned mail stations and intended to be used by the California Column. A rebel squad under First Lieutenant Jack Swilling burned Union supplies at Stanwix Station on March 30, 1862, and skirmished with the Californians. By this time Swilling had founded what later transformed into Arizona's state capital of Phoenix. Rebels later fought the Battle of Picacho Pass just north of Tucson as the Union army approached the presidio, the Picacho Pass skirmish delayed Union forces for weeks after they retreated norths Finally Union troops captured the undefended Fort Breckenridge to the northeast of Tucson and then attacked the city. The same day the Union began their advance on Tucson, Sherod Hunter with only about 100 men withdrew from Tucson due to the lack of reinforcements which never arrived. He left ten militiamen and Lieutenant James H. Tevis behind to observe the Union attack. Confederate Tucson was captured without a shot fired on May 20, 1862, and James H. Carleton and his 2,000 men took command of the presidio, the Confederates escaped to Mesilla. The Union column moved on a week or so later, Carleton left a small garrison behind to occupy the rebel city. In 1863 with the help of Arizona's founding father; Charles D. Poston, Union Arizona Territory was created and Tucson became the capital. After the Civil War the fortress would nolonger play a direct role in warfare though the presidio walls would continue to serve as sought out refuge by settlers until Geronimo's surrender in 1886. Fort Lowell was built next to Tucson in 1873 and became a major army post. With the end of the Apache threat, the Tucson area was rendered peaceful and the fort useless. Fort Tucson's last wall in 1918.From the 1860s to 1890s Tucson would become a major stop for United States armies on campaigns to fight the Apache, hundreds of Tucson militia served in the expeditions. By the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the next war fought in southern Arizona, only one portion of the remaining four presidio walls still stood, the others were apparently buried or demolished for new development around the turn of the 20th century. The wall was three feet thick and a few feet tall. It stood in between two later American buildings and was finally destroyed in 1918. A pair of local women made a plaque which marked the location of the wall. Years later in the early 1960s, an old liquor store was torn down to make way for a parking lot. When the earth was revealed another foundation of the presidio was found, it was a 3-foot-thick (0.91 m) portion of the northeastern bastion. An archaeological survey was being put together to examine the presidio, it was also proposed that a park be made of the area but the planned parking lot was built before the team could begin digging. In 2006 the issue was reopened and the parking lot was removed. A team of diggers investigated the site and found hundreds of artifacts from all of the fort's periods. It is suspected that much of Fort Tucson remains intact but underneath the present day city. A reconstructed bastion began to be constructed in 2006, including a row of jacals just outside of the new bastion.ARIZONA TERRITORYAfter the expansion of the New Mexico Territory in 1853 by the Gadsden Purchase, proposals for a division of the territory and the organization of a separate Territory of Arizona in the southern half of the territory were advanced as early as 1856. The first proposals for the Arizona Territory divided the territory along a line of latitude rather than the later division along a line of longitude that would divide Arizona from New Mexico.The proposals arose from concerns about the effectiveness of the territorial government in Santa Fe to administer the newly acquired southern portions of the territory.The first proposal dates from a conference held in Tucson that convened on August 29, 1856. The conference issued a petition to the U.S. Congress, signed by 256 people, requesting organization of the territory and elected Nathan P. Cooke as the territorial delegate to Congress. In January 1857, the bill for the organization of the territory was introduced into the United States House of Representatives, but the proposal was defeated on the grounds that the population of the proposed territory was yet too small. Later a similar proposal was defeated in the Senate. The proposal for creation of the territory was controversial in part because of the perception that the New Mexico Territory was under the influence of southern sympathizers who were highly desirous of expanding slavery into the southwest.In February 1858, the New Mexico territorial legislative adopted a resolution in favor of the creation of the Arizona territory, but with a north-south border along the 32nd meridian west from Washington, with the additional stipulation that all the Indians of New Mexico would be removed to northern Arizona.In April 1860, impatient for Congress to act, a convention of 31 delegates met in Tucson and adopted a constitution for a provisional territorial government of the area south of the 34th parallel north. The delegates elected Lewis Owings as provisional governor.At the outbreak of the Civil War, sentiment in the area south of the 34th parallel was in favor of the Confederacy. Territorial secession conventions were called at La Mesilla and Tucson on March 16, 1861, that adopted an Ordinance of Secession that declared itself independent of the United States and established the provisional Confederate Territory of Arizona with Owings as its governor, and petitioned the Confederate Congress for admission. The Confederate Territory of Arizona became officially recognized when President Jefferson Davis signed the proclamation on February 14, 1862. To commemorate this event, February 14, 1912, the fiftieth anniversary, was selected as official date of statehood for Arizona.On March 30, 1861, there was a small skirmish at Stanwix Station which was the westernmost engagement of the Civil War within the Confederate States of America. Despite losing the engagement the Confederate forces had succeeded in their objective, to destroy supplies of forage prepared by Union forces and delayed the advance of the California Column eastward across the desert from Fort Yuma. In April 1862, a small party of Confederate cavalry moving northwest from Tucson met a Union cavalry patrol from the California Column advancing eastward across Western Confederate Arizona' near Picacho Peak. Confederate forces based in Tucson then retreated to Texas, after holding up the California Column, preventing it from reaching New Mexico and cutting off the rebel forces that were then retreating after being defeated in the New Mexico Campaign.Early in the war, the Confederacy regarded the territory as a valuable route for possible access to the Pacific Ocean, with the specific intention of capturing California. In July 1861, a small Confederate force of Texans under the command of Lieutenant Colonel John R. Baylor captured Mesilla in the eastern part of the territory, before fighting the Battle of Mesilla against the garrison of Fort Fillmore, just outside of town, which then hastily retreated back to the fort. After John Baylor won the battle, he called for reinforcements and cannon to lay siege to the citadel. Upon hearing of this, commanding Union officer Isaac Lynde abandoned the fortification, Baylor's force cut off the fleeing Union troops and forced them to surrender. On August 1, Baylor issued a "The Proclamation to the People of the Territory of Arizona", taking possession of the territory for the Confederacy, with Mesilla as the capital and himself as the governor.On August 28, a convention met again in Tucson and declared that the territory formed the previous year was part of the Confederacy. Granville H. Oury was elected as delegate to the Confederate Congress. Oury drafted legislation authorizing the organization of the Confederate Territory of Arizona. The legislation passed on January 13, 1862, and the territory was officially created by proclamation of President Jefferson Davis on February 14.The following month, in March 1862, the U.S. House of Representatives, now devoid of the southern delegates and controlled by Republicans, passed a bill to create the United States Arizona Territory using the north-south border of the 32nd meridian west from Washington. The use of a north-south border rather than an east-west one had the effect of denying a de facto ratification of the Confederate Arizona Territory. The house bill stipulated that Tucson was to be capital. It also stipulated that slavery was to be abolished in the new territory, although it never existed there in the first place. The Arizona Organic Act passed the Senate in February 1863 without the Tucson-as-capital stipulation, and was signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on February 24, the date of the official organization of the US Arizona Territory. The first capital was at Fort Whipple, which served until the founding of Prescott, in the northern Union-controlled area. In 1867, following the end of the Civil War, the capital was moved to Tucson. In 1877 the capital returned to Prescott and in 1889 it was moved to Phoenix.[edit] The early mining frontier[edit]History of ArizonaEuropean ColonizationSpanish PeriodMexican PeriodTerritorial Period The Depression and World Wars One result of the steamboat trade was the establishment of ports and landings up and down the Colorado. Most were ramshackle affairs that served local mines, but a few developed into small towns: Yuma, La Paz, Ehrenburg, and Hardyville (now Bullhead City). No other stretch of Arizona was as hot, and the communities themselves offered few luxuries to weary travelers who pulled up there, but the ports had strategic importance. Steamboats deposited shipped goods along the riverbanks, where wagons freighted them to forts, mines, and ranches of the interior. With the aid of steamships and freight wagons, 19th century industrial America conquered Arizona in three and a half decades for the sole purpose of obtaining silver and gold.Jacob Snively made the first big strike in 1857 when he discovered gold along the Gila River about 20 miles (30 km) upstream from the junction with the Colorado. A year later more than a thousand people were panning for coarse grains in placers or robbing those who did in Arizona's first boomtown, Gila City. It set the pattern for the boomtowns to come. Although a few prospectors became wealthy, most barely found enough gold to purchase food at the inflated prices, bread for a dollar a loaf and beans at 50 cents a pound ($1.1/kg). In 1864, according to journalist John Ross Browne, the "promising Metropolis of Arizona consisted of three chimneys and a coyote."Another type of mining community, the company town, also developed, that were fueled by corporate ventures. Most did not appear until railroads and a revolution in technology made large-scale copper mining feasible, but a few such as the Sonora Mining and Exploring Company represented corporate capitalism's first foray onto the Arizona frontier. Two partners, Samuel Heintzelman (a hard-nosed Pennsylvania German) and Charles Debrille Poston [1] started the company in Cincinnati in 1856. Poston and a German mining engineer named Herman Ehrenburg established the company's headquarters at the abandoned presidio of Tubac and purchased the 17,000 acre (69 km²) ranch of Arivaca from Tomás and Ignacio Ortiz. Poston and Hientzelman established the town of Cerro Colorado. The following spring, another German engineer, Frederick Brunckow, discovered silver in the Cerro Colorado Mountains just north of Arivaca. Soon advertisements were trumpeting Poston and Heintzelman's venture as "the most important Mining Company on this Continent."Heintzelman left Poston in charge of the mines while he attempted to raise money back east. More interested in self-promotion than production, Poston allowed his engineers to open too many mines without developing any of them and never completed the smelting works at Arivaca, and he spent much more than he made. The Panic of 1857 swept across the financial centers of the United States and the business unraveled. While Heintzelman tried to entice investors, banks failed, debts mounted, and work in the mines themselves proceeded at a snail's pace. In December, Heintzelman persuaded firearms inventor Samuel Colt to invest $10,000 in the company. By 1859, Colt had seized control of the company. Colt imported new boilers, lathes, and steam-powered crushers and amalgamators, but ore still had to be shipped out by wagon across southern Arizona and loaded onto steamboats near Fort Yuma.[edit] Mexican laborHeintzelman and Poston's most immediate problem was the labor. Like Sylvester Mowry's Patagonia mine, the Sonora Mining and Exploring Company relied heavily on Mexican labor, a precedent that would be followed by most of Arizona's extractive industries for years to come. There were 231 males living at Tubac in 1860, only 23 of whom had been born outside Mexico or the territory of New Mexico. In the mining communities of Santa Rica, Arivaca, and Cerro Colorado, Mexicans constituted 70 percent of the labor force (67 of 96). Poston bragged of his paternalism and claimed that he married Mexican couples and baptized their children. Other managers despised their Mexican employees and never understood the fluid work patterns of the frontier. When Mexicans left the mines in late August for the fiesta of San Augustín in Tucson or made their annual pilgrimage to Magdalena, Sonora, to pay homage to San Francisco in early October, Heintzelman and his German engineers complained about Mexican laziness and unreliability, not understanding how fiestas maintained bonds between people and powerful saints and made life more bearable and knit families together on the frontier.More serious was the exploitation of Mexican labor itself. According to mining engineer Raphael Pumpelly, Mexican workers received 12 to 15 dollars per month, compared to 17 to 30 dollars for Anglo workers. The mining companies often paid them "in cotton and other goods, on which the company made a profit from one hundred to three hundred percent." Differential wage scales, combined with late pay, lead poisoning, malarial fevers, and abusive overseers prompted Mexicans to strike for better conditions or to simply walk off the job.On May 1, 1859, in an event known as the Sonoita Massacre, a ranch foreman named George Mercer whipped and shaved the heads of seven Mexican workers. Five days later, one of Mercer's friends was murdered at his ranch near Tumacacori. Enraged, Mercer and seven other armed men vowed to drive all Mexicans from the region. They rode up to a mescal distillery in the Sonoita Valley and opened fire, killing four Mexicans and one Yaqui Indian.News of the attack spread rapidly, and many Mexicans fled to Sonora. Watching their workforce evaporate, mine owners condemned the massacre and some workers came back to the mines. Acts of violence escalated. During the late 1850s and early 1860s, Mexicans murdered 25 people in Arizona, yet Anglos, the minority, killed 39 people in the same period, 23 of whom were Mexicans. It must be remembered that the Mexican population was very small. Other than Tucson and Nogales, which were nothing more than towns, the latter being on the current border, Arizona was a vast frontier. Mexico did not begin colonizing their Northern frontier until after the Mexican/American war and the treaty of Guadelupe Hidalgo in 1848. Mexico intended to enlarge their population in the north in order to help prevent further territorial losses. In a few ways Arizona is like the Texas and New Mexican border region, but only because of Mexico and the relations with Mexicans. All three were regions where Anglos and Mexican desperadoes slipped back and forth across the border to commit crimes.[edit] Expansion of the mining industry Prescott's first courthouse, 1885When the party of gold seeker Joseph R. Walker called on Brigadier General James H. Carleton in New Mexico in 1862, Walker may have offered Carleton an unofficial partnership in exchange for military protection. Walker left for Arizona with Carleton's blessings, and in 1863 he and his men discovered gold along the north bank of the Hassayampa River five miles (8 km) south of Prescott. Other prospectors made strikes along Lynx, Weaver, and Big Bug creeks, which soon became known as the Walker Mining District. Carleton established Fort Whipple in Chino Valley later that year.For the first time in Arizona's history, non-Indians came to the mountainous interior and stayed. After Ohio mining interests led by Samuel Heintzelman pushed the Arizona Organic Act through Congress in 1863, Fort Whipple even became the first capital of the new Arizona Territory. Then the following year, both fort and capital were moved south to a new town named after William Hickling Prescott, author of History of the Conquest of Mexico. A community of miners, merchants, and territorial officials sprang up in the middle of Yavapai and Apache country, and one bonanza generated ripples of exploration that led to other bonanzas. Soon mines tunneled into some of the driest country in North America, and names like Hassayampa, Haquahala, and Castle Dome entered the geography of the mining frontier. Like most features of that geography, Arizona's early mines rarely developed into permanent communities, because the miners tended to leave after stripping away all of the gold.The prospectors pioneered hundreds of miles of mule trails and wagon roads across the western Arizona desert. The first route embarked from La Paz, the second from Fort Mohave, the third from Hardyville over a toll road that enabled great high-wheeled freight wagons to carry loads as heavy as 15,000 pounds (7,000 kg). For six months of the year, temperatures could rise above 100 °F (38 °C) as the sun reflected off the desert pavement and the rocks of the low western mountains. The freighters had to double- or triple-team their wagons up inclines like Yarnell Hill to reach ore-bearing high-country of the interior. Steamships on the Colorado and freight wagons straining across the basins and ranges of the Harcuvar, Aquarius, and Vulture mountains made Prescott the most important center of settlement north of the Santa Cruz Valley. They also led to the escalation of Arizona's Indian wars.[edit] Mormon settlementUnder the direction of Brigham Young, Mormon settlers were sent to colonize the area that became the Arizona Territory as early as the 1850s. A provisional government, the State of Deseret operated for a few years following U.S. acquisition of this area, and it included much of northern Arizona. Most Mormon settlers were recalled to the Utah Territory during the Utah War.A second wave of Mormon settlers was sent to Arizona by Young in the 1870s. Major Mormon settlements included St. Johns, Snowflake, Pine, and Jonesville.During the U.S. government's crackdown on polygamy, many Mormons used the Arizona Strip to hide from authorities. The Grand Canyon separates the northern half of Mohave County from the county seat of Kingman, making it more difficult for law enforcement to operate there, even into the 21st century. John D. Lee successfully evaded authorities for years while operating Lee's Ferry there. Colorado City, Arizona, continues to have a reputation as a haven for polygamists.[edit] Conflict with Native AmericansMain article: Arizona settlement and Indian subjugation Fort Bowie site near Apache Pass.The first round of hostilities towards native American groups during and just after the American Civil War involved Carleton's California Volunteers and Pima, Maricopa, Mexican and American civilian militias. Carlton's California Column established Camp Lowell in Tucson in 1862 after Captain Sherod Hunter evacuated his Confederates. They also founded Fort Bowie near Apache Pass and Fort Whipple near Prescott. Even though Carleton and his Confederate counterpart, John Baylor, ordered the extermination of all hostile Apache men in Arizona, the California Volunteers were spread too thin to conquer the Yavapais and Apaches or protect the settlers in outlying ranches and mines. They were supplemented by local militias.The most famous civilian fighter of the 1860s was King S. Woolsey, a man from Arizona who sold hay and other supplies to federal troops. He made money off the government, lost money in mining, and established two ranches, one of which was east of Prescott on the Agua Fria River. Woolsey hated the Yavapais and Apaches who ran off his stock, but he was a close friend of Juan Chivaria, the Maricopa war leader, who fought alongside him. The old pattern of military alliances forged by the Spaniards of the Santa Cruz Valley prevailed. During the 1860s and late 1870s, Maricopas and Pimas often joined Anglos and Mexicans in short, savage campaigns against their Apache and Yavapais enemies.After a series of raids around Prescott in January 1864, Woolsey and 69 other Anglos, Maricopas, and Gila Pimas pursued the attackers across the Agua Fria and Verde drainages to Fish Creek Canyon in the Salt River country. There they encountered about 200 Apaches or Yavapais. Woolsey touched his left hand to his hat and his party opened fire. According to one eyewitness, 24 Indians died. Many Indians died, but not enough to change the balance of power in the territory. Atrocity bred atrocity as the body count on both sides climbed into the hundreds.With the Civil War still going on and Carleton still fighting the Navajos, the U.S. War Department therefore authorized Governor John Noble Goodwin of Arizona to raise five companies of Arizona Volunteers in 1864. Recruitment was delayed for a year, but by the fall of 1865, more than 350 men had been issued into service under the command of nine officers. The overwhelming majority were Mexicans, many of them from Sonora, or O'odham and Maricopas from the Gila River villages, who had grown up fighting Yavapais and Apaches, as had their fathers and grandfathers. Many never received shoes or warm clothing. They lived in hovels and marched for days on beef jerky and parched cornmeal. They carried .54-caliber (14 mm) rifles with plenty of ammunition, in addition to bows, arrows, and war clubs. For the next year, these frontiersmen guarded wagon trains between Prescott and La Paz and campaigned relentlessly across central Arizona.Their officers permitted them a few freedoms that made enlistment more tolerable. At the largely Mexican company at Camp Lincoln on the Verde River, 16 women joined the men. These women created a sense of community at the outpost, marching in procession behind an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe to meet the volunteers whenever they returned from the field. According to the Third Arizona Territorial Legislature, the volunteers inflicted "greater punishment on the Apaches than all other troops in the territory." Traveling "barefoot and upon half rations", they killed 150 to 173 Apaches and Yavapais while losing only ten men in combat themselves. Many territorial officials and militia officers requested their re-enlistment, but the end of the civil war brought federal troops back into the territory in large numbers and assumed federal military authority.

Please feel free to bid however, before doing so ask any and all questions prior to doing so. High bidder to include 15.00 for safe secure shipping. I have sold many bottles in the past and all have been very pleasent transactions. The bottle is a deep amber and the picture did not come out the best. More pictures will be added within the next day. On Jan-06-12 at 12:37:26 PST, seller added the following information:Just added the last six pictures hope this will give you the bidder on the condition of the bottle.

Bottle Auction: Extremely Rare Colored Western S.F. Gaslight Ammonia


Extremely Rare Colored Western S.F. Gaslight Ammonia Bottle Auction Description: In 40 years of collecting western glass, I have never seen this particular color before. This is a quart size " Ammonia, Mnfd, By S.F. Gaslight Co." These are very popular western bottles due to the history and amazing colors they come in. The S.F. Gaslight Co. realized that a by- product of their manufacturing process for the then new street gaslights was ammonia...well, they made lemons out of lemonade, and produced ammonia for household use. This beautiful bottle is a pure canary yellow...no trace of green, or amber. It is a unique color for this bottle. I have seen them in aqua, yellow topaz, lime green all the way to pure emerald green. They even come in lavander, and cobalt blue! This one has very bold embossing and a crudely tooled top, circa 1880. The glass texture is very pebbly, and pristine. This one has never been in the ground, and was found wrapped in wicker.Absolute mint condition. I am letting some of my personal collection go lately to focus more on my western bitters collection. This is a great and rare western blown piece. I will cover postage in the continental U.S. Good Luck!

Bottle Auction: Gorgeous Western Dug Cathedral Pickle


Gorgeous Western Dug Cathedral Pickle Bottle Auction Description: Here is a beautiful find fresh to the collecting scene! This beautiful and ornate pickle was found in about 20" of pine needles in the foothills near Grass Valley, California. The gentleman was leveling a hillside to construct a shed, and found this pristine piece of glass! This cathedral style pickle is 11 1/2" tall with an early smooth base, and crude drippy top. The color is a deeper green aqua, and there are thousands of little champagne bubbles throughout the glass. The condition is so perfect, it is hard to believe it sat in the pine needles for 140 years. There is no stain, wear, potstones, open bubbles, flakes, or damage of any kind. A perfect western pickle. ( Sorry for the scarred hands, but it is probing and digging season!). I will cover postage in the continental U.S. Good Luck!
