Prescott, Arizona

First published in ''Real West'' Magazine in January 1982. Annotated by Robert F. Palmquist There, in October 1877, Virgil Earp was deputized by Yavapai County, Arizona Sheriff Ed Bowers during a street gunfight. During the fight, Virgil killed one of the robbers, shooting him twice through the head with a Winchester rifle. In 1878, Virgil served in Prescott as a village night watchman for a couple of months, and was later elected as a constable in Prescott. In 1895, Virgil and Allie traveled to Colorado where they met Virgil's brother Wyatt. They stayed briefly and soon moved back to Prescott (Prescott, Arizona) in Yavapai County, Arizona where Virgil became involved in mining. They moved south after that and began ranching in the Kirkland Valley (Kirkland Valley, Arizona). Virgil was nominated as a candidate for Yavapai County, Arizona Sheriff in 1900, but pulled out of the election for health reasons. capital Fort Whipple (Fort Whipple, Arizona) Prescott (Prescott, Arizona) Tucson (Tucson, Arizona) Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona) government_type Organized incorporated territory 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 (Abraham Lincoln) on February 24, the date of the official organization of the US Arizona Territory. The first capital was at Fort Whipple (Fort Whipple, Arizona), which served until the founding of Prescott (Prescott, Arizona), in the northern Union-controlled area. In 1867, following the end of the Civil War, the capital was moved to Tucson (Tucson, Arizona). In 1877 the capital returned to Prescott and in 1889 it was moved to Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona). thumb Fort Bowie site near Apache Pass. (Image:FortBowieSiteAZ2009.jpg) The first round of hostilities towards native American groups during and just after the American Civil War involved Carleton's California Volunteers (List of California Civil War units) and Pima, Maricopa, Mexican (Mexico) and American (Americans) 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 (Fort Whipple, Arizona) near Prescott (Prescott, Arizona). 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. Eagles (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott#Athletics) Prescott (Prescott, Arizona), Arizona, United States 1978 Early years Born in 1878 in Prescott, Arizona, to Daniel and Eliza (Flynn) Campbell, who came to Fort Whipple (Fort Whipple, Arizona) in 1873 where Daniel worked until 1887.
