    This book helps not only Latter-day Saints but anyone interested in Arizona History in remembering some specific items of Tucson’s past. The first section is especially great in putting the Mormon Battalion into Arizona Historic perspective. The Images of America series really helps in an almost year-book style, to picture the past in focussed areas of the country. The book is to recommended to those interested in LDS history or in Arizona history.
