    The Battle of Glorieta Pass (“Gettysburg of the West”) saw Confederate forces attempting to cut off Union supplies and reinforcements on the Santa Fe Trail.

    To stop this advance, Colorado’s 1st Infantry Union volunteers marched 400 miles in 14 days from Denver, over Raton Pass, and on to Glorieta Pass, New Mexico to meet for this decisive battle which took place from March 26-28, 1862.

    On March 22nd from 10:00am – 4:00pm, Colorado’s 1st Infantry re-enactors will be at Four Mile Historic Park (4MHP) providing an intimate look at the importance of this battle to Colorado history and what military life was like during the Civil War. See and hear real cannon & musket fire (no live ammunition) with salutes happening on the hour.
