On March 28 of 1862 a Confederate army, comprised mostly of Texans, was moving through Glorieta Pass at the southern end of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. They had taken Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico, and now planned to sweep north into Colorado. They met a Union Army, comprised mostly of Colorado and New Mexico volunteers, which intended to stop them. The Battle of Glorieta ensued. At the end of the day, the Confederates has taken the battle field, but a Union flanking maneuver had destroyed their supply train, forcing the Confederates into a torturous retreat back to Texas..
Our Scenario Battle will be on Glorieta Camps, in Glorieta Pass, only about a mile from the actual battle field area.
