New Mexico

Glorietta Pass today, as filmed by the makers of THE WEST. Here, in 1862, Union troops assisted by Colorado volunteers turned back a Confederate attempt to march north from Texas along the Rio Grande and capture the gold fields around Pikes Peak, a victory called "the Gettysburg of the West."
