The Glorieta Pass battlefield was the site of an American Civil War battle that ended Confederate ambitions to cut off the West from the Union.  The battle took place on March 26-28, 1862 on the Santa Fe Trail  between the Pecos River and Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Wikipedia)

Our two-hour walking tour of the battlefield is an outstanding opportunity to hear the history of this famous battle that occurred in New Mexico.  It will be led by retired history professor, Claudia Floyd, a volunteer at the Pecos National Monument wo specializes in battlefield history.

The field trip ends after the tour; however, bring your lunch for a picnic at the ramadas.  Additionally, you may want to explore the beautiful Pecos National Monument while you’re there.
