GADSDEN PURCHASE AND BORDER SURVEYS PRESENTED BY DANIEL JUDKINS
The Tubac Historical Society Breakfast with History
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 8:30 AM – 10 AM at the LONGHORN GRILLE AMADO
Surveys of the new border after the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, from 1849-1853, led to disputes and almost resulted in military action. The problem was solved with the Gadsden Purchase. This led to more border surveys. All of the surveys involved work in and around Tubac and Nogales. This presentation will highlight the many maps, landscape views, Indian tribes, and illustrations of plants and animals made by the surveyors and scientists working on the project.
