"Arizona's Military Past"

This museum highlights the history of Arizona's 158th Infantry Regiment, a heralded military outfit that initially began as a rag-tag volunteer force comprised of Mexican-Americans as well as members of Pima and Maricopa Indian tribes. The volunteers disbanded nearly two years after, however the regiment reformed as the First Arizona Infantry and some enlistees participated with Teddy Roosevelt's 'Rough Riders'. In 1917, the 158th (as it was now called) fought in WWI, and in WWII; its troops received the moniker 'Bushmaster' due to their experience in jungle warfare. The museum contains a vast array of memorabilia which presents over 100 years of Arizona military history, and is worth a stop for those who wish to learn more about this aspect of Arizona's military past.
