History of Arizona
The state of Arizona only became part of the United States as a result the Mexican-American War. Originally part of Mexico, the territory of Arizona was given to the U.S. in return for $15 million due to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo signed in 1848. Once a part of the United States, it was decided that Arizona was to be absorbed by the Territory of New Mexico. Dissatisfaction with the way New Mexico was run, led to the settlers decision to secede from the Union. It was President Jefferson Davis of the Confederate States, who signed an act to formally recognize the territory; the region then officially became the Territory of Arizona in 1862. Due to this acknowledgment, Arizona then became an ally of the Confederate Troops. The area supplied men, horses, and gear during the Civil War. On February 24, 1863, the Territory of Arizona was formally accepted to be a new U.S. territory by the federal government. Arizona then went on to be the last of the contiguous states to reach statehood.
