Western National Parks Association, Oro Valley
Doug Hocking will speak on The Graves at Dragoon Springs, at 12 P.M., and 2 P.M. Saturday, August 27, at the Western National Parks Store in Oro Valley. There are four graves at the Overland Mail Station at Dragoon Springs. Forest Service signage says they are the graves of four Confederate soldiers killed May 5, 1862. However, two of the graves have been there since 1858. Who really lies buried there? What are the exciting stories behind their demise?
