Abstract

In this discussion of joint statehood for the Territories of Arizona and New Mexico, the primary purpose has been to show the particular attitudes and activities surrounding the jointure campaign in the Territory of New Mexico. This limitation of scope is particularly dictated by the fact that the national aspects of the campaign has received sufficient emphasis in other works and partly because the discovery of new materials has prompted an intensive rather than an extensive survey of Territorial politics. The goal is to explain the reason for the acceptance, by a wide majority of votes, or jointure in the New Mexico Territory as compared to the stinging defeat dealt the bill in the Territory of Arizona.
