What was nm importance in civil war?

Civil War battles occured in New Mexico that were little noted in the "States" (New Mexico was then a territory). In the view of many historians, however, these battles were important in preserving the Union because they ended the attempt by the Confederacy to capture the West (New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado), its people, and its vast resources. Two of these battles were at Valverde, about 29 miles south of Socorro, and at Glorieta, a few miles east of Santa Fe. The poignant nature of the Civil War was particularly relevant here: the two commanding officers of the New Mexico battles, Col. Sibley of the Confederate Army, and Col. Canby of the Union army, had campaigned together in earlier battles and there were even rumors (untrue, as it turns out) that they were brothers-in-law. Much has been written about these battles, the leaders, tactics and results, but too little about the individuals, the foot soldiers and volunteers who fought the batlese and, for many of us, our ancestors.
