Arizona Recent History
Since 1769, Arizona has been part of the province of Upper California of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (as well as the modern states of California, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, part of Colorado and Wyoming).
In the second half of the 18th century, the Spaniards built several fortified settlements in Arizona, including a fort in 1775, from which the second largest city of Arizona, Tucson, grew. During the same period, the Spaniards actively established relations with the Indians and developed trade.
Throughout the “Spanish” period in the history of Europeans, there were very few Europeans among the population of Arizona, no more than a thousand people, about half of whom lived in Tucson.
In 1821, the period of Spanish rule ended – Mexico became independent. The new state, torn by internal contradictions, did not have money to maintain forts in Arizona, and cases of Apache attacks, stealing cattle and killing Europeans, became more frequent.
At the same time, the Americans came to Arizona. It is believed that the first US citizens to visit Arizona in 1825 were hunters Sylvester Patty and his son James.
After the U.S. victory in the Mexican–American War in 1848, much of what is now Arizona was purchased by the United States. These lands became part of the Territory of New Mexico, created in 1850. In 1853, the United States bought the rest of Arizona from Mexico.
During the American Civil War, in 1861, the Tucson portion of Arizona and southern New Mexico declared their independence from the United States, creating the Arizona Territory within the Confederate States of America. A year later, in 1862, federal troops returned the lands of Arizona and New Mexico to the United States.
In 1863, the Arizona Territory was created by the US government.
In the sixties of the XIX century, armed clashes between American settlers and Indians in Arizona became more frequent. The conflicts continued until the 1980s and led to the relocation of most Indians to reservations.
In Arizona, mining and agriculture were actively developing, and railroads were being built.
On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the forty-eighth state of the United States, the last of the “continental” states.
The First World War created the conditions for the rapid development of the economy of Arizona. There has been a sharp increase in the volume of mining, primarily copper; increased demand for agricultural products, including cotton. Military bases were built in the Phoenix and Tucson area, the army became one of the largest employers in the state.
In 1919, the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the oldest national parks in the United States, was created in Arizona.
In 1926, the famous Highway 66, also known as the “Mother of the Roads” and the “Main Street of America”, was laid through Arizona.
