Tucson in Southern VictoryEdit
After his victory at Contention City, Confederate General Jeb Stuart formed an alliance with the Geronimo and his Apache tribe. Together, they turned their attention to the town of Tucson, where there was a combined force of US cavalry and Tombstone Rangers.
The Apache's attacked the US forces there and lured them into an ambush near the Canyon half way between the town and Tubac which resulted in the Battle of Madera Canyon. After their defeat, what little remained of the combined US cavalry force retreated back to Tucson and stayed there for the remainder of the war.
