History of Arizona


Originally inhabited by Native American tribes, Europeans began arriving in the region in the 16th century. Spanish Franciscan Marcos de Niza, who made contact with the native people in 1539, was the first European to enter the state. In 1752, Spain founded fortified towns at Tubac and in 1775 at Tucson. With Mexico achieving its independence from Spain in 1821, the region that now comprises Arizona became a part of the new nation's Territory of Nueva California. It also came to be known as Alta California. Following the defeat of Spain in the Mexican-American War, the land was ceded to the United States in 1848 and in 1863, it became a separate territory. On February 14, 1912, Arizona became a US state and was the 48th state admitted to the Union. During the American Civil War, Arizona was a Confederate Territory. During World War 2, Arizona was also the site of German POW camps and Japanese-American internment camps.
