(Dorothy Chafin has recently written a multi-part account of her life. We will be publishing pieces of that over the next few months) 

My family moved back to Arizona during the year I was attending the University of Denver; they moved to Prescott and the Grounds family moved back to the Kingman area. I've been forever grateful that we came back to Prescott rather than the Mohave County location. (My family moved away, little by little, but I had no desire to leave.)

No mention of Miss Hall and her journey to Washington.

In 1863, Christmas was new to the list of celebrations for most people in the United States. Popularized in part by the drawings of Santa Claus and Christmas done by Thomas Nast for Harpers Weekly magazine, much of the tradition as we know it today was in place by the time of the founding of Prescott. That Christmas was remembered and recorded by a number of people. No doubt the fact that this was the formation year of the Territory of Arizona had much to do with that.

Yup, there really was a Fort Whipple in Virginia - although most tourists to the Nation's Capitol know it as Fort Myer and Arlington National Cemetery. How it came to be is an interesting "side-bar" of Civil War History - and not one of the finer moments of our Government's history!
