Important because of the light it throws on Sibley's campaign in the Southwest. During the early part of the war, Confederate Gen. Henry Sibley led his Texans to victory at Valverde and at La Glorieta Pass in the New Mexico Terr'y.
In fact Sibley's Brigade was the only brigade to participate in the 3 most significant campaigns in Texas: the New Mexico campaign, the battle for Galveston, and the Red River campaign.
They captured Albuquerque & Santa Fe but were later beaten by superior Union forces.
Very Good. Item #1074
