The Picacho Silver Mining Company of Arizona, Incorporated under the Laws of New York, cert No. 72. Issued to Wm W. Shepard for 120 shares. Dated (New York) March 12th, 1866. Signed by Thomas H. Perkins, Secry. and L. W. Winchester Prest. Lithograph by Latimore Bro's. & Seymour, 21 Naussau St., N.Y. This extremely rare, possibly unique certificate is important to not only early Arizona mining, but also for Civil War Historians, Overland Stage Collectors, and those interested in infamous Western Outlaws. The United States took possession of the area of Arizona north of the Gila River in 1848 after the Mexican American War, and secured the area south of the Gila River in 1854 under the terms of the Gadsen Purchase. The Mormon Battalion's march through southern Arizona in 1848 helped blaze the way for the Gadsden Purchase. They were the only religion-based battalion and constructed a wagon road through Picacho Pass, opening a southern wagon route to California, which was used by many forty-niners during the Gold Rush. The route was later traversed by the Butterfield Overland Stage to carry passengers.
